Fantasy Band: Katy B
'I've created such an odd band but Pino will hold it together'
VOCALS: TEEDRA MOSES
She's an R'n'B singer who's also written for people like Christina Milian. I love her voice, it's a mix of jazz, R'n'B and gospel. She's got a lot of attitude. I love feisty singers.
BACKING VOCALS: I THREES
Bob Marley's backing singers looked like they were having so much fun. If I was ever reincarnated I would want to be one of them. All the harmonies are so beautiful and they really supported him.
DRUMS: MICHAEL SHREEVE
He played with Santana and drummed for them at Woodstock, where he performed an incredible solo during "Soul Sacrifice". We were shown that performance at The Brit School.
KEYBOARDS: BILL EVANS
His piano-playing is just amazing. My teacher told me the piano is not a percussive instrument: you play it the same way you would sing. When I first heard him, it definitely sounded like he was singing.
BASS: PINO PALLADINO
I've created such an odd band but, because he can play any style, he'll be able to hold it all together. He plays so simplistically but with so much groove, and that's what you need in a bass payer. To lock into everything and bring it all together.
