Jazz Jubilee.

(By Lance).
This being Jubilee weekend it seems appropriate to me to list those jazz people with titles. That they were mainly either self imposed or created by the media is irrelevant. Below is my choice followed by Wikipedia's selection. You may care to add your own.
Empress: Bessie Smith (Empress of the Blues)
Kings: Oliver, Curtis, Pleasure (I & II). Louis Prima (King of the Swingers).
Queen: Dinah Washington (Queen of the Blues).
Princes: Lasha, Robinson.
Dukes: Ellington, Jordan, Pearson.
Count: Basie.
Earls: Warren, Hines, Grant, Klugh.
Baroness: Pannonica de Koenigswarter.
Sir John Dankworth.
Sir George Shearing.
Dame Cleo Laine.
