Some sample questions from this category:

* Which jazz pianist is best known to fusion fans for stroking the organ with the group 'Return to Forever'?
* What jazz trumpet icon was heralded as the 'Prince of Darkness' to media hounds and music critics, none of whom could seem to break the ice in their interviews with this master?
* Name the alto saxophonist behind the landmark 1959 release, 'The Shape of Jazz to Come,' quite possibly the most forward-looking album of its decade.
* This British guitarist, prior to forming 'Mahavishnu Orchestra,' grew up on the violin, traveled as a bluesman, and worked with Miles Davis extensively.
* This incredible percussionist, if we were to apply sports terms, could be called the greatest 'scout' in the history of jazz, recruiting such talents as Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, and Lee Morgan during his tenure as one of the 'Jazz Messengers.'
