Morbidfilter: What Jazz greats should I see live...before they die?

So I was lucky enough to see Ray Charles before he died at the Hollywood Bowl. And Sarah Vaughn at the Blue Note in the 80's. And Ella at Radio City around the same time. But I never got to see Sinatra. Or Sammy. Or Nina Simone. Largely because I couldn't afford it. So now it occurs to me I can. And Southwest tickets aren't that expensive if I want to go anywhere in the US. So who should I see among the greats - who are still out there playing - before it's too late?

When all the guys join in singing...only they're yelling it from the back of the band

Okay what is the name of the kind of swing music where the band does call and response with the singer? Not the backup singers. The horn section. [more inside]

Remember Name that Tune? Here's the Itunes version. Only without prizes or a host in an ugly sportscoat

Help me identify the LAST unknown songs on my Itunes. Mostly jazz, some blues and one or two pop songs. [more inside]
