What would be some cool jazz, blues, fusion, etc. artists who use 7's in their music? I've been really into jazz fusion shit after that Yellowjackets thread a few weeks back, and would like to utilize the versatility and range of a 7.

There's Robert Conti, but his music is pretty hard to find, and it's mostly all ridiculously fast 6 string bop. Nothing at all like this

Then there's John Pizzarelli. I just found him earlier this week, but he's awesome, and exactly what I was looking for (without knowing what that was ). I wish I could play like he does.

Sam Dunn's cool, too. He does a lot of the Eastman videos.

Fuck, every time I watch these videos I start jonesing for a 7 string hollowbody
This is a bit different, but this guy plays a lot of Holdsworthy stuff on a DC800.
