The music of late night middle of the road radio, long commuter car rides to school, and the Trinidad household. Nevertheless, all of this music is a part of my upbringing and has probably affected me on a subconcious level. If the music of my youth was straight-ahead jazz, or symphonic classical music, then perhaps this list would look a little different. If my favorite trumpeter Cuong Vu can honestly admit some of his musical influences to the world, then so can I. I maintained, at an early age, that I would remain open minded about all forms and all styles of music. This attitude has served me well to this day, and I am not about to change my principles now. I love all music!

This is the kind of list that can get me excommunicated by some of the artists I am privileged to work with and projects that I am involved in! You may be wondering why certain artists are listed here, or why certain songs belong in these categories. The simple answer is because that is how they are listed on my portable music player! So, I am posting the songs here in case I ever lose my list!
