Brian Culbertson for sure and then Keiko Matsui, Rick Braun, Peter White, Boney James, Mindy Abair just to name a few.  We are lucky to have a small jazz club in Oakland CA which brings so many smooth jazz artist to bay area!  We are able to see many of these artists!

I’m not an enormous Jazz aficionado but I do appreciate the many talented jazz artists.  I preferred “Blues” which is the roots of that genre.  

 

In the 60’s I listened to “traditional jazz” musicians like Miles Davis and Dave Brubeck. But the grayer I became I learned to enjoy the music of “smooth Jazz” much more.  I’ve checked out the 3 artist you’ve mentioned and enjoyed listening to their work.

 

Thanks for your topic it reminds a blues/rock devotee like me to take time to listen and enjoy other musical genres.
