Who has the most influence on you?

Who of the saxophone players that you listen to have the most influence on your playing? I'll start it off by my own influences. That would be Bird, Sonny Rollins and Trane.

    The two who have the most influence on my playing would definately be John Coltrane and Michael Brecker. R.I.P. Guys, the world greatly misses you.

      hm.. LeRoi Moore... (rip) has been my biggest influence since i started unfortunately, he died on my birthday last year, but he has a style all his own and really adds color to the Dave Matthews Band

    At my level it is not significant. I started to be interesting after to have heard Lester Young and Stan Getz. Now, trying to play, i listen the records differently. It's sure Coltrane who is the most interesting but surely not influence my playing ! Too big, too far...
