    There are so many wonderful musicians out there, I can't possibly even narrow it down to a list. Of course, Michael Manring and Steve Lawson are on there. Manring is my all time fave. But there are so many talents out there. My brain hurts trying to narrow it down, so I won't!

    I do have a special affection for John Pattitucci, his six string work and his upright work. That guy is so classy and smooth. I just love his solo lines, very hornlike.
