I play in a couple San Francisco area jazz bands, and have played jazz in the area here for over 3 decades (darn it, I am no longer young)!.
As for influences, no big surprises to you fellow jazzers: Clifford Brown, Freddie Hubbard, Miles Davis, Blue Mitchell, Lee Morgan, 'Fats' Navarro (the lot of those top ever beboppers ...)
A Touch Of Brass Big Band
Full Spectrum Jazz Orchestra
I play trumpet, flugelhorn (45 years), valve trombone (10 years) and like to compose tunes (since in-vitro).
