I gotta tell you, this was really the luck of the draw here. I read the umpteenth Madonna posting, and for the first time I honestly was bored out of my mind. It was the same old thing, and for the first time I felt no urge to respond at all. I couldn't even find a laugh in it, and ususally I can find something in there, even if the jokes pathetic. I opted for the random artist page, hoping I could find someone artistically worthwhile, and it honestly came up here.

Cheesie...the only reason I responded at all was because I thought the comparisons being set forth were inappropriate at this particular time.

Dizzy is a no-brainer for an Early Influence. He provided the trumpet solo for Stevie Wonder's Do I Do (A fantastic funk song, might I add) and has had considerable influence on the funk and soul styles. One of my all-time favorite jazz giants (Along with Louis Jordan, Benny Goodman, George Benson, Woody Herman, and Louis Armstrong).
