Just four votes. Hmmm.

Fletcher Henderson
James P. Johnson
Elvin Jones
Oscar Pettiford

Hard to pass on several other "worthies", but some of them will be getting plenty of votes from other folks.

It took six years to get Bud Powell "in"? Two years behind Gil Evans? Five behind Fats Waller?

I went with Fletcher Henderson, Lenny Tristano, Elvin Jones, and J.J. Johnson.

Reflecting my own tastes in the music, it would have been J J, Wes, Pettiford and Tristano. But all on the list were giants.
