Nat King Cole and Johnny Hartman are two that I like quite a bit in jazz.

Jeff Buckley, yes. Freddy Mercury, yes. Nick Drake, Scott Walker, Rufus Wainwright, Robert Plant, Prince? It's so difficult to pick just one when the material that they sing is often so disparate.

I'd be tempted, though, to say Tim Buckley. His material wasn't particularly good (IMHO) but his voice always made it sound glorious.
Yes, I like those too from Cat Stevens, but if anyone has not heard "morning has broken", with a quality bit of headphile equipment they are missing my point.

I do like the direction and popularity of this thread, so I see it going for awhile to the benefit of us all.

thanks for you input! ;-D

X2 for Jeff Buckley, his voice reminds me of watching Roger Federer play tennis... perfection.

2x on Simen Hestnaes aka I.C.S. Vortex. He has something omnipotent power in his voice. His live-perfomance is very dodgy sometimes though, depending on day.
