Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good bebop bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent bebop bands.This list answers the questions "who are the best bebop artists of all time?" and "who is the greatest bebop musician ever?"If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular bebop players that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
