St GermainSt Germain

At the court of Louis XV in 18th century France, there was a character who amazed everyone by pretending to be several centuries old. He went by the name of Saint Germain. As we enter into the 21st century, the person we're concerned with today is just as impressive, but claims to be only 30 years old and is neither a swindler nor an aristocrat, but rather a maestro and a handyman.

Stacey KentStacey Kent

New York native Stacey Kent never anticipated a career in jazz music: she was a Sarah Lawrence graduate with a degree in comparative literature. But her childhood days spent listening to the traditional beauty of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole undoubtedly influenced her. While on holiday in Europe after graduating from college, she took up singing without much formal training and never looked back.

Stanley ClarkeStanley Clarke

A brilliant player on both acoustic and electric basses, Stanley Clarke has spent much of his career outside of jazz, although he has the ability to play jazz with the very best. He played accordion as a youth, switching to violin and cello before settling on bass. He worked with R&B and rock bands in high school, but after moving to New York he worked with Pharoah Sanders in the early '70s. 

Steely DanSteely Dan

Named after a prosthetic phallus in William S. Burroughs’s novel Naked Lunch, Steely Dan was the creation of guitarist Becker and singer-keyboardist Fagen, who met at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, in 1967. They moved to New York City in 1969, where they worked on a movie soundtrack and toured as backing musicians for an “oldies” act, coming to roost in Los Angeles late in 1971 as staff songwriters for ABC Records. 

Steps AheadSteps Ahead

Originally called Steps when it was formed in 1979 by vibraphonist Mike Mainieri, this group at various times has included tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker; keyboardists Don Grolnick, Eliane Elias, and Rachel Z; guitarist Mike Stern; bassists Eddie Gomez and Darryl Jones; and drummers Peter Erskine and Steve Smith, among others.

Stevie WonderStevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder is a much-beloved American icon and an indisputable genius not only of R&B but popular music in general. His best records were a richly eclectic brew of soul, funk, rock & roll, sophisticated Broadway/Tin Pan Alley-style pop, jazz, reggae, and African elements — and they weren't just stylistic exercises; Wonder took it all and forged it into his own personal form of expression.

SuchmosSuchmos

Suchmos is a Japanese rock group formed in 2013. The band’s name, Suchmos, is adapted from a jazz musician Louis Armstrong’s nickname, Satchmo. Suchmos' music includes elements such as rock, soul, jazz and hip-hop.
