Being a trumpet player I like to think that I have been influenced by all the great players going all the way back to Louis Armstrong thru Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillispie, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown,Lee Morgan, Kenny Dorham,Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard on through to modern players such as Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Roy Hargrove, Brian Lynch and well there are just too many to name. I listen to them all.
