A great jazz vocalist has improvisation skills, timing, phrasing, range, power, ability to convey emotion, impact on other vocalists, uniqueness, and versatility. Maybe you have heard a song that really caught your attention, but listening more closely to it you realise it was the sound of the singer and how they were kind-of just part of the song. Without that particular singer, the song just might not sound the same to you.
