    no particular order... no "best"... just 5 Artists you like.. from any Form.. Music, Painting, Dance, Poetry, etc..
    If you can.. include some sample of their work.. youtube.. images... etc.. And also some commentary on what resonates with you about their work..

    I lean heavily to jazz piano, yet love other artists for their instrument and talents.

    1) Ahmad Jamal, 2) jazz violinist Regina Carter, 3) bassist and young singer Esperanza Spalding, 4) vocalist Dianne Reeves, 5) jazz flutist Althea Rene.

    ****, how do you stop at five! From the past, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Nancy Wilson, Milt Jackson, Oscar Peterson, Andre Previn....and on and on.
