I will be gradually adding living musicians here that I want to keep tabs on:
- Michel Camilo
Dominican-born Latin Jazz pianist. Love his stuff.
- Chick Corea
Legendary Jazz pianist
- Conrad Herwig
"Trombonist, composer, clinician" – I want to play like him someday.
- Dave Brubeck
of Take 5 fame – yep, he's still alive and jamming the ivories
- The Yellowjackets
Hands down my favorite fusion group. Emphasis on group since they sound like a unit.
There will be more.
