Hellooo SOTW!!

Have been playing sax for 11 years now and playing/listening to jazz for about 3-4 years and have learnt so much already...
Basically I just wanted to know what jazz musicians/saxophonists people listen to who they find inspiring...i listen to a wide range already, including grover washington jr., gerald Albright, Charlie Parker (of course!) etc... but i was just wondering whether there were any others that i maybe haven't come across yet...

Also if anyone could recommend any good 'jazz books' that i could read just to learn a bit more about the subject... and lastly any playing material i should try out, i mean i can play through the real books but anything else maybe that anyone has found interesting/challenging/enjoyable to play??

Thanks everyone, hope to hear from some people,
