10 Musicians I Would Bring Back from the Dead. How could I resist? The first five are easy. I'd love to hear what they'd compose in this age. Bach Beethoven Mozart Schubert Wagner.. Imagine the Ring Cycle with today's electronics. Billie Holiday ..for moody jazzy blues, she's it Louis Armstrong .. more jazz, thick and raspy. Ella Fitzgerald ..no one can scat like Ella Duke Ellington ..his version of the Nutcracker Suite is my favorite choice for Christmas music Janis Joplin ..timeless Jim Morrison .. I love him on a late Saturday night Stevie Ray Vaughan ..
