    Influences and Teachers:
    I don't play exactly like any of these guys, but I dig their playing...

    Glen Worf and Tony Levin for all around appropriateness. These guys can play anything and it always sound "right" to my ears.

    Jimmy Haslip and Jaco for the jazz-inflected stuff.

    Sting. You gotta admire a guy at that level with the balls to edit his playing down to the bare essentials that much. Sublime artistry IMHO.

    Hard to beat Duck Dunn or John Kahn for blues/R&B stuff.
