    Hi. Along the threads of the who would you choose. Combine that with the fantasy football idea and dream up your fantasy band. Seen Blues Briothers 2? the band at the end, that kind of deal. Alive or dead. Interesting to find out who you would be having playing with who!

    Whole band would be fun, but think better stick with the trumpet section.

    Who's going to kick it off.

    Andy Taylor.

    Sorry, no prizes, just for fun.

    This is hard, but let's go for some variety -
    Doc Severinsen
    Harry James
    Al Hirt
    Louis Armstrong

    I'm not sure how the section would sound, but we sure would be covered for some different solo styles.

    I think these guys could mold a pretty tight section.

    I always liked the Count Basie and Duke Ellington bands. I never saw Duke, but I saw Count Basie and it was almost like a religious experience.

    I can only imagine what this would sound like on a ballad that was backed by one the the Kenton Orchestras

    oops... I didn't read the title on the earlier post. doh!

    If I had to pick a section I'd pick:

    Snooky
    Faddis
    Thad Jones
    Clark Terry
    Greg Gisbert

    a little of the old, and a little of the new. that section would kick arse!

    This is a fun idea. Though I'd like to propose something different. Many of the above mentioned are lead players. We all know (or should know) that every great section doesn't have all high note artists. The players that "make" the section are those who play in tune, in time, not too loud, not too soft, with a nice sound, etc...

    I'm going to throw out names of some great "section" players (often un-recognized). Many can play lead or jazz. These players (combined with any of the names above) would create a truly great section.

    Marvin Stamm, Laurie Frink, Ron Stout, Jason Carder, Jon Owens, Alan Rubin, Larry Lunetta, Glenn Drewes, Scott Wendholt, Chris Botti (yes, Chris Botti!), Joe Wilder, Bud Burridge, Randy Brecker, etc...

    Obviously there are tons more. These are just a few of the people who have made it easy for me to play when in a section situation.
