Joe Pass
Herb Ellis
Django Reinhardt

Some fusion players:

John Abercrombie
Al DiMeola (or Return to Forever)
John Mclaughlin
Bill Connors
Larry Coryell
Phillipe Catherine

I suggest you go back and listen to all the Louis Armstrong records you can find regardless of what kind of music you are into now.:bow:

I'd concentrate on the guys that are masters of phrasing and voice leading...really helps getting the ears tuned to what's to come.

adding to a great list:

Pat Martino
Kenny Burrell
Charlie Christian

Andy

Ive recently started listening to some jazz like George Benson, Herbie Hancock, and Wes Montgomery, but I dont know which musicians to listen to. Suggest some songs/artists?
Start with some compilation CD's which are not hard to find in the jazz idiom
That way you'll have a broad starting point and then you can refine when you hear artists that interest you.

Lenny Breau is a must for any serious affectionado of the guitar! You should checkout some of the clips on Youtube. The guy is simply amazing to watch and listen to!
