Well, Phil Lesh was no stranger to music when he started playing with the Dead (or the Warlocks back then). He was a very accomplished jazz trumpet player (reminds me of another current-day bassist ). He said that jazz and classical music was a much bigger influence on him rather than the soul/blues players of his time. Phil Lesh is the man.
