Tom Waits, Norah Jones. It's not at all about tonal quality, unless it is.

Roy Orbison (the voice) - and for sheer contrast, Traveling Wilburys. Its like Jessie Owens passing the baton to one of the Pawn Stars.

Female - Jackie Evancho for most potential.

Right, it just depends on what you are looking for. I think Tom Waits has done some great stuff (I saw him once in a small club when he was just 'up and coming'). But he won't get many votes for 'tonal quality'.

There you go - Roy O really had a great tonal quality, just an amazing 'sailing on air' voice.

Don Henley and Linda Ronstadt. Funny, he was in her backup band before he and Glenn Frey started the Eagles. And I saw someone mentioned Sheryl Crow - she sang back-up for Don Henley before she hit it big.

And another vote for Freddie Mercury

One time I heard an interview with The Chairman. They asked about his singing style. He said, "My whole career has been learning to breathe like Tommy Dorsey".

I can believe that. One of his signatures was to hit a note, then drop down an octave and gliss up to where you want to be. Just like pulling in a trombone slide

There were some great duets in country, including George and Tammy, Conway and Loretta, and Porter and Dolly.

Not so many in rock, though both Don Henley and Tom Petty did notable duets with Stevie Nicks.

+1 on Keely Smith. I'd also add Peggy Lee

Today I'd include Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga.....and of course the hilarious Garfunkel and Oates. Here are two of their milder content songs.



The next clip is mildly NSFW and has some profanity in it...



For the guys it's Lou Reed and David Bowie

Mr. and Mrs. Loaf. Don't know if this one is technically a duet, but Merry Clayton's performance with Mick in Gimme Shelter is IMHO one of the most powerful I've ever heard.

Definitely. Merry Clayton is amazing! Very recognizable, but seldom known. She's one of the best female voices, along with Karen Carpenter and Patsy Cline, and many others...

For men, Freddie Mercury, Art Garfunkel, Otis Redding and Bing Crosby come to mind first.

Agreed on Gimme Shelter.
