@buddhaplex SRV, Jeff Buckley, Keith Moon, Flea and Wyclef Jean
@h0h0h0 dream jam - david bowie, trent reznor, al jourgenson, richard d james and emerson
@beebo_wallace oh, I want in on that ...
@Lummox hmm. Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson duet would be cool..
...but who do you put with those guys. oh - tim reynolds. 3. that is 60% in places where they use the metric system.
...and i would want them to do something with the middle section of "Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity" by Gustav Holst. That sweeping epic part
@dianeburnett [my dream jam, motley crew that it is]- Janis Joplin, Charlie Parker, Freddy Mercury, Ray Charles, Jimi Hendrix
And in case you missed it above, beebo blew his out at bee.sides. good stuff.
It’s tougher than it looks, especially when you go across genres. I’d love to have Roy and Stevie Ray in the mix, and I’d die to have Morrison on vocals, but they’re gonna be busy hanging with buddhaplex & beebo & jrnoded. And it looks like Miles is spoken for too. So I’m gonna mix it up with:
Ry Cooder and his buddy Ali Farka Toure, along with Maceo Parker and ask him to bring Prince along if he’s free (these two tore it up in Vegas. Amazing.) If Prince can’t make it I think (don’t laugh) I’d want Willie Nelson to provide vocals. (Or David Byrne. It's all about availability.)
And here’s where it gets weird: I’d ask Hildegard von Bingen to come along. As a nun she might be a little shy at first, but I think she’d really warm to the boys once everyone started playing -- especially Willie. And Prince would totally bring out her inner super freak. And maybe she’d be willing to provide percussion, ‘cause I checked in with Bill Berry and Mick Fleetwood and they're both tied up.
(& and an update: I'd want my daddy there, and TD4 too. which means the room's a little bit more crowded. and that much better.)
