On the jazz side, you left out Jim Pepper. On the rock side, Tommy Bolin.

I've always loved this song, Marc. I've put it on a lot of mix tapes over the years. Never fails to make me happy.

I'm a very small percentage Native American, too: http://bit.ly/jjmqgL

All the best,

Marc,

Great post. I've always loved that song. Awesome how the dancer segues right into the bass part.

Red Sullivan

Also on the jazz side, John Lewis (yes, the MJQ John Lewis) also shares the noble heritage...(I believe).
