Here's one - Favorite big band jazz tune
(Dave M will probably get this) -
Louie Bellson Big Band, "Santos," from The London Gig,
1983, Pablo Records
The entire LP is phenomenal.
Can't find this tune on you-tube, but it's hardly obscure among jazz aficionados.
This is fun. A few more.
Favorite classic-style female soul vocalist
Who else? Aretha FranklinFavorite Aretha tune
Chain of Fools
Favorite (and only) all-time best female vocalist

Bill Evans. Hands down. No pun.
