So your ideal band is Brian Eno and Sid Vicious? Mine too.

I bought a Fender bass once off someone and went round to his house. He was painting canvases - a lot of them. I asked him why was he selling it, had he lost interest in music. He said music was fine but he couldn't stand musicians so he was doing painting instead.

You'll miss out on a lot of great Machito recordings, then.

Soprano saxophones (with rare exceptions)

Bechet & Lacy? But yeah, after Trane it seemed that every tenor player felt he HAD to take up soprano, but without developing an instrument-specific approach, IMO. I can do without Shepp & Pharoah on soprano, for instance.

I have no instrument I'd rule out, though harpsichord and celesta are hard sells. Can't stand the sound of Kellaway's harpsichord on Ben's See You at the Fair.

I wouldn't care if Frank Wess and James Moody had never played flute, but jazz would be a poorer place if Rahsaan, Dolphy, Sam Rivers and a few others never did. And Nicole Mitchell & James Newton.
