Best band in the history of recorded music

Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Three.

I dare you to argue that point.

Best band EVER? Shew, Rush is not my cup'o'tea. I've tried a few times to give them a closer listen but just can't do it. His voice grates on me something awful.

Louis Armstrong and his Hot Sevens or Benny Moten and his Kansas City Stompers or Early Fletcher Henderson....take your picks.

I was hoping you'd be more specific. Glenn Miller and Louis Armstrong were pretty damned good.

Glenn was wonderful....Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Any band with Miff Mole or J.C. Higginbotham or Barney Bigard -- it's kind of an endless list.

No mention of Ellington yet?

Between Duke and Billy Strayhorn, we have some of the finest music of the last two centuries.

Cool

Louis Armstrong is the musical father of his country & should be on the $5 bill.

Don't forget Count Basie. He and his band had a great run.
