And Is there one you like to hear on your favorite Jazz recordings .
Most like to hear: Piano/Keyboards
Favorite instruments for jazz:
1) Saxophone, usually tenor or alto
Note: when depending on public support then move "vocals" to position #1, for example listen to WBGO-FM, a publicly supported radio station which plays at least 50% vocals day in and day out.
Whenever I hear a horn ( thats not attached to a car ) , I think of Jazz .
Sax, for sure!
