      You do say 'dream' band ...

      I would be on lead vocals, on backing vocals would be Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Tina Turner (hope they'd do that for me), I'd have Jimi Hendrix on guitar, Brian Blade on drums, Jean Michelle-Jarre on keyboards ... bass I still have to decide ...

        "I would be on lead vocals, on backing vocals would be Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday..." LOL.

        I don't know the keyboardist but mista Blade is the man on the kit. Saw him years some years back w Dave Binney + Ben Monder.

        How about Fima Ephron on Bass? ...Adam Nitti?

        Ahem...glad you asked:

        Depends on the band. Ok, let's say Fusion:

        That's easy...just get Lost Tribe to regroup (gotta find them first) but replace Binney w Bob Berg, add Roy Hargrove and get: The Lost + Found Tribe.
