- Influences and Teachers:
Ray Brown, James Jamerson and Paul McCartney were three of my biggest influences originally who got me interested in the bass. There are really just too many others to mention now. I've learned something from almost everyone I've heard.
I've had some great teachers over the years: For classical bass fundamentals, Charles Medcalf, Barry Green and Rick Vizachero, all members of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. For jazz, the great and much missed Cal Collins and Kenny Poole were major mentors to me. Lou Lausche has also been a big influence, and a great teacher. Last but not least, Mike Sharfe.
