Below is a listening list I compiled during my Master’s at University of North Texas — it is a history of jazz singers from Early Blues Singers to modern-cross over artists. It is not meant to be an exhaustive list but to give an overview of who I think important jazz singers in the history of the genre. I’ve divided the singers into “categories” of my devising to organize the list for browsing. Clicking on the name will lead to a link of a representative song from that artists recording output. Enjoy!
