Ramsey Lewis and, of course, Jeff is fantastic if you're going to include him in this category

an absolute favorite is hard to say, but I love Jelly Roll Morton because I love ragtime.

When I was playing piano I would only practice the rags and not the classical pieces.

My teacher got fed up with me, said I had no discipline.

I always associate JRM with this pronouncement about my general character, which I have tried so hard to embrace.

Thelonious Monk and Professor Longhair.

But Bud Powell and Dave Brubeck are up there in my book as well.
