If you could only listen to one you have to go with the guy who has the most versatility and that is Doc. Don't even have to say his last name - you know who he is. Some may swing better or be more creative on improvisation. Some may soar higher, but the best at all disciplines is Doc. I love them all, but if you only pick one go with the one Maynard (not too bad himself) picked as the best "Doc."
