Along with the players named (surprised that it took so long for Wayne Shorter to come up :D ) I would add Michael Blake. Check him out with Ben Allison's group, I love his tone which seems to be the most difficult thing for players to iron out on sop.

Ok, not that I'm his number 1 fan or anything, but Tim Garland. Check out his sop playing with Acoustic Triangle - the sound is exquisite.
I'll second that - Tims playing rocks.

Up to No. 20 and nobody's mentioned Johnny Hodges, Bob Wilber, Kenny Davern, Carina Rascher, or Gerard McChrystal!
