For me it was one and only Pat Metheny!!! And my parents :).

In my house father used to play some jazz/funk CD's rather often, but I didn't get it at all. More - I've hated it! Everything has changed after only one concert, where my partens brought me - Pat Metheny Group in 2003 with Speaking of Now Tour. After few pieces I was in love with this music.

Same here, haha.  I know it was before high school jazz band, because we only got that after I and a couple others practically begged the band director to try it during my senior year.  No idea, really...I guess I was naturally drawn to the music. Wink

What got me exploring jazz was love for FUNK and R&B, especially early 70's stuff. Earth, Wind & Fire to be specific......very heavy jazz influence in their early recordings. From there I started with Miles Davis......Then I met my wife who is from New Orleans, that got me into the Marsalis brothers and deep southern jazz and blues....As far as I am concerned the roots of rock music.
Artists like Weather Report, Spyro Gyra, Buddy Rich, Coltrane frequent my turntable platter also.
 
But it is still a work in progress......and having fun!
My jazz collection....a work in progress.
