    Jaco was my first thought but it's hard to make a case against Bach.

    Look in the dictionary. I think you will see a photo of Miles Davis.

    Its Miles for me.

    I also dig Beethoven, Tchaikovsky (I actually really love the music from Nutcracker Suite and look forward to going to see the local ballet school performance every year), Stravinsky, and Ravel.

    Also, Charlie Parker. Oh and dont forget Louis Armstrong.

    Obviously I cant answer just one, but if forced to, I would say Miles.

    Of course. Like who doesn't agree with this? I mean, after Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Miles, and Monk, Max Martin is pretty much the next name that rolls off everyone's tongue. o_O:confused:

    Chopin is one who I am enamored with at the moment. Passion, genius, emotion...
