Too many to mention. A few: Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Sonny Rollins, Gil Evans, Clifford Brown, Ben Webster, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Lester Young
Everything EXCEPT smooth jazz and fusion
Saw Mingus and Rahsaan Roland Kirk on two different nights at the Village Vanguard back in '74 or '75 back when I was a senior in High School. Amazing! There's been so much great music I've either seen since then that I can't specify any more
I am a tenor saxophonist & arranger and have led a Nonet (9 piece band) for many years.
