Listmates,  Here is a reply from Scott.

 Hi Bob,

Actually rather than 521 jazz singers, there have been 5,000. It's just that 
there are 521 great ones.

Probably a dozen or two of the 521 are not necessarily jazz (like Frank 
Sinatra, Tony Bennett and some of the swing era big band singers) since I 
was very inclusive. But I think you'd enjoy at least 200 of them. I do 
include Clancy Hayes, Jack Teagarden, Pat Yankee, Banu Gibson and singers 
like that along with the more modern-styled ones.

And of course swing was jazz though not all big bands of that era were swing
