Like many of you out there, I enjoy discovering artists that may not necessarily enjoy commercial success but nonetheless are talented musicians who are worthy of attention. To that end, please suggest some of your "unsung heroes".

I'll start. If you like some old time western swing, take a listen to Jimmie Rivers and the Cherokees. Links:

Lenny Breau. If you like "jazz guitar" and haven't heard him, then go fix that quickly. A "guitarist's guitarist," no major commercial success, drugged/drank himself to death, the usual unfortunate story. Best heard, imho, playing solo or in a duet. Unbelievably tasty, fluid playing that's kind of like a jazz/flamenco/country/classical hybrid that I can't think of anything else that comes close to.

5 O'Clock Bells/Mo' Breau is a good cd (all solo), but I just recently got Standard Brands (acoustic duets with Chet Atkins) and was totally floored.

(ahem)

Albert Ayler. Free Jazz pioneer. His playing of Sax is just so spell binding and emotionally intense that sometimes its so realisitic that sometimes i can't listen to it. He was good Free jazz and haha theres not that much good free jazz out there! but give him a try look up summertime on youtube and youll see what i mean about unique Sax player.
