Well, we have had a little bit of everything, so I was thinking of what's been kinda missing...for my next pile of dreck...
1. FLETCHER HENDERSON/BENNY GOODMAN--we haven't had much of any swing-era band stuff, so it's on the way soon.
2. RAYMOND SCOTT: The Penguin. If you don't know Raymond Scott's music, yes--you do know some of it if you watched Looney Tunes or Animaniacs. But that was only a very small part of his output. In reality, all of us who dabble in samples owe everything to Raymond Scott. He was doing it LONG before Moog, LONG before Walter Sear, LONG LONG before Wendy Carlos, etc. Just Google Raymond Scott and see just what a genius of acoustic and electric music he was.
BTW, I worked for Walter Sear in the late 60s when his electronic music and recording studio was in the Great Northern Hotel in NYC. I pulled patch cords and did setups in exchange for lessons. Walter was another lesser-known champion of electronic music.
He passed away not long ago--if you don't know about Sear Sound in NY, google it as well.
