Female Vocalists


Recommended Posts

Split from the Diana Krall Wine list thread

 

Diana - smoky and sultry with excellent phrasing. Jazz at it's best.

 

Ella - The best voice of all time?

 

Dianne Reeves - Totally unique

 

Love Billie and Nina as well, (and a Astrid Gilberto)

 

Non Jazz - Annie Lennox and Tracey Thorn

 

PS - gotta add Whitney in her hey-day. Her rendition of the star spangled banner still evokes a lit of emotion.

Won't make me popular I know, but I think that Billie Holiday has a voice like fingernails on a chalk board. ;)

 

Doris Day is a nice Sunday afternoon voice.

Mariah Carey has an amazing voice.

Whitney is whiney

Annie Lennox very good

Charlene Spiteri (of Texas) very good.

Carly Simon - exceptionally under rated IMHO

Dolly Parton - gotta love the little sparrow.

This sounds like a typical playlist from a Jonathan Schwartz radio program.

 

I'll bet almost any of his weekend shows has each singer other than Whitney played at least once.

Oy vey.

 

I hate Maude Maggert. No talent. Zero.

 

Jessica Molaskey is a friend of mine. But to put her on a best list....just doesn't make sense. Pleasant enough, but there's not a lot of there there.

 

Kelli O'Hara? She's also a friend - now she has good opera chops, but not in the top tier, and personally she's too operatic for the show roles she's had lately.

 

Audra - now there's a singer.

I think it just differentiates between a great voice (i.e. Celine Dion) and a great singer (Billie, Joni, etc)
