Horton’s biggest musical influences have been Miles Davis, Weather Report, Cannonball Adderley and Herbie Hancock. Horton has also composed music for award winning films and produced albums for dozens of artists in multiple genres.
“Overall, Horton is a first when it comes to creating moods and grooves. The album seems to be evenly divided between the quietly evocative to the outright funky. It seems like a strange combination but anyone can find something to like in each track. Horton is a fine musician and with Seasons, he has put together a nice effort." JazzReview.com
”His playing displays an introspective vulnerability, a poetic sense of space and an undeniably romantic lyricism. His writing stretches genre boundaries, establishing an exciting benchmark for the future in instrumental and experimental music.” - Thomas Bacon
