No one on your list can even approach, Etta, Vaughn, and Pattie. We are talking about ability and not popularity. It is not weather I like their songs, It is their ability. First of all thanks for being bold and courageous enough to compile this list. I must disagree, as you — I think — left of Ella Fitzgerald, she belongs at or near the top.
