I've recently gotten into Michael Buble and he is absoulutely incredible. I adore his music and was wondering if anyone could reccomend me some similar artists. If so that would be fantastic, and thank you in advance.

Hey, if you're looking for big band/swing singers... there's Vic Damone, Harry Connick Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Mel Torme, Louis Prima, The Mills Brothers, Lou Rawls (did a little bit - check out his CD, "Lou Rawls: Great Gentlemen of Song"), Ella Fitzgerald (& Louis Armstrong), Jamie Cullum, Peter Cincotti (not really big band/swing, but he is jazz), Nat King Cole, Susie Arioli Big Band (not many have heard of them), Tony Bennett, Bing Crosby, Bobby Darin... However, I would say these are my top three:
1. Michael Buble
2. Frank Sinatra
3. Bobby Darin

Anyways, any of those artists listed above are swing/big band/jazz singers. Hope these are what you're looking for!!

You might also like to check out Josh Groban. His style is not anything like Michael's but he has an amazing voice!! He also has David Foster as his producer!

Definitely Jamie Cullum. Unfortunately there aren't many male singers with the talent and style that Michael have...I wish there were more ::sigh:: Female artists that I enjoy are Linda Eder (It's No Secret Anymore) and Renee Olstead. They have a similar big bang swing style. Linda Eder has an amazing voice and great music and Renee Olstead has great songs...but her voice could use some work; she is very young though so I'm sure we can expect great things from her.

I don't really care for Josh Groban. Sure..he's got a great voice, but I just don't like his musical choices at all; that style of music just doesn't do it for me. I need more swing and jazz!!! Hmmm... some other suggestions of good artists: as said above, I really recommend Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole is great as well.

I was wondering if anyone was going to suggest Josh Groban. He's totally amazing, and I love him--very different style from Michael, but still amazing nonetheless!

This is my recommendation:
For more "current" jazz artists...

Harry Connick Jr.
Peter Cincotti
Jamie Cullum
Renee Olstead
Josh Groban (he's more pop-opera)
Dave Koz
Chris Botti
Matt Dusk
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Brian Setzer Orchestra

For more "old style" ones...
Frankie Sinatra
Dean "Dino" MArtin
Sammy Davis Jr.
Bobby Darin
Louis Prima
Nat King Cole
Benny Goodman
Louis armstrong
Duke Ellington
Count Basie
Bilie Holiday
Ella Fitzgerald
Bing Crosby
Paul Anka
Nina Simone
Rosemary Clooney

(He) was not of course a jazz singer, but his process resembled the way many jazz musicians worked. The best of them listened creatively to the tunes... but heard them through the filter of their own experience... They transformed these songs, edited them, reinvented them, found something of value in even the most banal tunes. The instrument didn't matter.
- Why Sinatra Matters

"...as far as jazz innovation is concerned, this music demands to be heard and present listeners with a choice: To keep re-hashing the music of yesteryear or lend our ears to music from afar that is bold, innovative and strives for originality."

Just the other day I was watching the Tavis Smiley show on KCET and I saw this singer by the name Amos Lee.WOW!! He was awesome.I looked up his site and later found out that he was perfoming later that evening on The Late Late Show on CBS. So I stayed up to watch and it was a great performance.I would say his music is more of a Blue's kind of jazz.If you like Norah Jones you will love Amos Lee.My favorite track is," In the arms of a woman".
