"Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis, was a "life changing" album for Tony. "Opus de Funk" and "Plenty Plenty Soul" both by Milt Jackson were the "life changing" albums for David. David also enjoyed Buddy Rich at a young age, but The Modern Jazz Quartet was always a weakness for him.
David gives a special mention to the (Art) Tatum (Lionel) Hampton (Buddy) Rich Trio and their version of "What is This Thing Called Love" where Buddy uses brushes.
