And you were allowed the full library of only one band, what would you choose?
Partner and I were discussing this last night…
He asked if instead of a band, it could be a composer, and we decided that yes, that is allowed (though only original arrangements– so you could have the jazz version of Rhapsody in Blue and the classical version of Rhapsody in Blue, but not the Swingle Singers version).
He then pointed out that a classical composer is probably the way to go. I agreed. Someone very prolific who has a wide range of style and influence across the genre. Probably also someone who wrote for piano, orchestra, and voice. (Maybe someone who does movie soundtracks too?)
#2 picks J. S. Bach. I love fugues and counterpoint, and he wrote a lot. Love it!
So, if you were stranded on a desert island and had the full library of only one band or composer, who would be a good choice and why?
