Fill out your dream quartet. Who would you hire?

 

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)
