Here is a complete a list as I could gather of nicknames of famous jazz musicians. You may have heard some of these, and not known who they refer to. Some of the nicknames are usually incorporated into the name (e.g. Julian 'Cannonball' Adderly, rarely called just 'Cannonball'), but I left the nicknames on their own. If I forgot anyone, /msg me. Thx.

Also, some artists may have been noded under different names than the one written here. I have tried to pipeline what I know, but I haven't checked all the links. If you find a faulty link, /msg me. (e.g. Julian Adderly could have been noded as 'Julian Adderly', 'Cannonball Adderly', 'Julian Edward Adderly', 'Julian Cannonball Adderly', 'Julian "Cannonball" Adderly'..... you get the idea).
