I love Charlie Christian. Can't get enough.

Lately, I can't stop listening to Brilliant Corners by Thelonious Monk.

During that time, I fell in love with Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, Dizzy Gillespie, big band stuff, and Stan Getz, as well as others. I like more harmonic jazz. I have never been able to get into Coltrane or some of the other cool, "all over the place" artists. I like it swingy, hot, and melodic.
Very nice. You make me proud that you have played jazz!

I don't know if you mean as a singer, but Nat was just as good if not better at the piano.

Speaking of Eric Gale; some of my music friends get him confused with Eric Gales, a blues guitarist. Eric Gale was a session guitarist for a long time, notably with Creed Taylor's label CTI Records. His LP, Forecast, from 1973 is a GREAT lp! He passed in the mid 90's I believe.
Gabor Szabo! He's on Chico Hamiltons' "The Dealer" album

I have the Complete Roost Recordings of Johnny Smith and The Complete Pacific Jazz Recordings of Chico Hamilton on Mosaic Records. Mosaic has some really great box sets of Jazz and Blues artists that would take a while to accumulate piecemeal, with extensive notes on recording sessions.
