Re: If you could build a band, who whould be in it.
I like the Big Band idea...gets more of my favorites in!
Sonny Clark - Piano (tough to pick just one)
Lee Morgan, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Clifford Brown - Trumpet
Wayne Shorter, Dexter Gordon - Tenor Sax
Sonny Stitt, Cannonball Adderley - Alto Sax
Curtis Fuller, Jack Teagarden - Trombone
Paul Chambers - Bass
Me - Drums (just keeping time and listening to the greatness surrounding me)
"Swing them to death".
