    Atlanta (Grant Park!)
    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    I'm heavily into Michael Franks, Al Jarreau, Kenny Rankin, Michael McDonald, and Phil Perry. Can anyone recommend any other vocalist whose style is simular to these guys?

    Here's some ideas:

    Al Jarreau: George Benson, Bobby McFerrin, Johnny Mathis, Mel Torme, Harry Connick, Jr., Lou Rawls, Billy Eckstein

    Kenny Rankin and Michael McDonald: Kenny Loggins, James Ingram, Boz Skaggs, Lionel Ritchie

    I would also recommend Eddie Jefferson, Johnny Hartman(sp?), King Pleasure, and Mose Allison.......for that real "Old School" jazz vocal style that pre-ceded the likes of Al Jarreau, McFerrin, et al.
