    I was always fond of George Benson as an influence.

    Stan Getz deserves some mention here as well.

    That's a good one. My mom is a huge fan of his.

    We played Mozart's The Magic Flute Overture and Rossini's La Gazza Ladra (go ahead and skip to 2:10, it's the part that matters) in Symphony a few seasons ago.

    Good call. Rach is epic.

    - Vocalise (Cello & piano)
    - Symphony No. 2 (3rd movement 1,2 is one of my favorite pieces of music of all time)
    - The Sea and the Seagulls (orchestral version)
    - The Isle of the Dead (1,2)

    More jazz:
    - Paul Desmond! My favorite alto sax player of all time (esp. the Sessions with Jim Hall), his album Bossa Antigua is also great (love Bossa Nova)
    - Kenny Burrell (e.g. Chitlins con Carne, from the album Midnight Blue)
    - and a bit of elevator music
    IN SERIO FATVITAS.

    on alto sax i like Eric Dolphy and Ornette Coleman a lot. especially Eric Dolphy. but those guys are both big multi-instrumentalists, so they are great on a bunch of instruments.
    and Charlie Parker, or course!

    great album! it's got Art Blakey on it too, who is one of my favorites.
    Blakey did a very cool album with Lee Morgan called: 'S Make It.

    here is Art Blakey and Lee Morgan playing together (Blakey on drums, Morgan on trumpet):

    Miles Davis did a really fantastic album with Stan Getz called Conception.
    Miles doesn't hardly play on the album, even though he was the leader on it. Stan Getz and Lee Konitz totally dominate the album. Gerry Mulligan is on it too. it's great stuff!
    Avis, i bet you would dig this album.
