    I had trouble coming up with 3. The first two are obvious
    Zoot Sims: The swingin'est tenor ever
    Stan Getz: The sound
    Lucky Thompson: Through my current teacher I've come to appreciate players like this and Junior Cook more. Understated and soulful.

    Only three is tough, but in the end it probably comes down to:

    Sonny Rollins
    Dexter Gordon
    John Coltrane

    Art Pepper
    Dick Oatts
    Joe Lovano
