Lester Young, only once on record (I think) but he did sing on gigs, or so I've read.

True, and did we mention Jimmy Woode?


Alan Silva of course did a lot of vocalizing (influenced by Carnatic music, among other things) but I'm not sure that fits within the OP's interest.

And he played at the same time?

No, not literally at the same time, but on the same song.

John Surman - and Lol Coxhill..

I don't recall them vocalizing (as per the OP's query) but maybe I'm wrong.

I want to thank each of you for the fantastic suggestions. They helped mightily in the preparation of my program on The Self-Accompanying Jazz Artist.

Here is a Dropbox weblink to a ZIP file that contains the musical and video files used in the program:

Don't miss "Hey Mr. Mumbles" by Clark Terry and Red Mitchell, with Red singing his bass lines as he plucks. It's on their Enja duet LP.
