    Does anyone know a modern sort of Billy Holiday or Halliday as she's sometimes spelt (i think)? Like a sorta really good smooth jazzy type voice but without all that pre 1950s throat scratchy recording distortions and stuff.

    And omg, how good is Glee?

    Does it have to be modern? And does it have to be female?
    Otherwise, I can name a ton for you.

    It doesnt have to be modern or female. Just that kinda style of music, but without all the throat scratching. Like what they were singing, but with modern day equipment.

    Oh, well srsly piracer, if it's modern billie type you're after, I dont think you can get any better than madeleine peyroux. She's *really* similar to billie!

    Norah Jones is also a good suggestion, plus she is good quality music too.

    I dunno, I avoid modern soul/jazz.
