I found this question almost impossible to answer, because so many names came to mind. To make it easier on myself, I will list two bands – one comprised of living players and the other… a true “ghost band”.
[Earl MacDonald on piano, of course.]
Living: Jerry Bergonzi (tenor sax), Dave Holland (bass), Roy Haynes (drums)
Deceased: Woody Shaw (trumpet), Paul Chambers (bass), Elvin Jones (drums)
