Of course I love Heath, Brown, Carter, McBride, Jaco, Clarke and the bunch, but also heavily influenced by Gaye, Cooke, Guy, Stevie, Meyer, Tribe, Hendrix, Aretha, MJQ, Miles + anything with Syncopation or Soul...the entire palette....

- Upright bass:
upright and electrics + too much expensive and distracting crap, been buskin on the corner in Kent, Auburn and Seattle lately.
