Your favorite (not "The Best", but your favorite) musical instrument player or vocalist

Of the guitarists, RonP’s also would have been my choice.

Harder to identify my two absolute favorite singer/songwriters.

And my favorite post bop trumpet players.

Andrea Motis, a great singer and musician.

I love this topic because it implicitly asks the poster to invest a little passion when answering the question. The result is often very rewarding for those of us who have not heard of a particular artist.
I also love the photos. One request though - please mention the subject of the photo. I’m 66 years old and still have quite a bit to learn. For instance, who is this intriguing person?

Thanks, but man was I way off in guessing who it was (Amy Winehouse?) No.

Holly Cole is great, and her version of Don’t Fence Me In is the best there is.

Lorne Lofsky (favorite recently discovered guitarist)
He’s an amazing (insert superlatives here) musician who has been everywhere and is little known.

Oscar, Oscar, Oscar… Bill Evans was more poetic in my opinion and played the kind of jazz I like most.
But Oscar Peterson could play elegant but greasy blues better than anybody.

I, too, appreciate photo identification.

How to tell it’s not Amy Winehouse. She’s smiling.

My favorite Baritone player…looks nasty, eh?

He’s really an amazing baritonist. I have to say my favorite though. . . probably a tie between Harry Carney and Ernie Caceres (both not “modern” players but still. . f’n’ amazing.)

Name please.

Pepper Adams
