@Mohab: There's not a specific project scheduled right now, but feel free to collaborate with members of the group - share your music, thoughts, performances, questions - and let's see what comes of it. I'm sure the group and ideas will grow as there's more activity and new members see what's going on. Lead the way!

@Ipshipta: Why don't you share a favorite song or two of Peggy Lee's so we can all get a feel? Thanks!

I love Buble's voice and I think he's a combination of Sinatra, Elvis and Dean Martin etc.. Since I won't hear those singers sing live anymore, I enjoy Buble's concert. It's definitely very different from recent pop singers.

I thought he was just a singer who happened to have a great voice until I heard some of the song he wrote, especially "Home".

not a big fan of buble either. Listening to a lot of Peggy lee these days. she's again done a lot of the oldie pop stuff and some jazz numbers too like black coffee. Can she be called a jazz artist?

Glad to see so many new members in the group as we kick things off.

@Roxie: Michael Bublé has most recently won Grammys in the catergory of Pop, and has a lot of awards for Jazz. He's all over the map, but definitely trending pop these day. I think can generally be classified in the "Easy Listening" genre that's associated with sentimental ballads and lounge music, similar to Norah Jones and Nat "King" Cole.

Wikipedia defines it as "a broad style of popular music and radio format that emerged in the 1950s, evolving out of big band  music, and related to MOR (middle-of-the-road) music as played on many AM radio stations." For me, he's the artist I hate to love! Great voice, but it's a bit affected, sounding too much like Sinatra in my opinion. What do you all think?

Is Michael Buble classified as a jazz singer, or maybe swing?
