    My Bass player. He has the ability to play every note around the proper one before finally finding the right one! Genius.

    This is the name I was going to post.
    Whenever I need to be lifted up, or energized, or to find a moment of sonic 'stillness', I can look to Herbie Hancock.

    I never was tightly wrapped into the pop music culture. There are people I will cite as influences but, in the same thought, it's a limited influence. Most of my inspiration comes from me.

    In the realm of mainstream rock/pop/R&B, Hendrix or Stevie Wonder. In jazz, probably Coltrane or Miles.
