I guess I don't "get" this kind of jazz. I can't tell if the band is actually playing a composition or just noodling. I can't tell if the guitar is playing something that goes with the bass part. So I have no idea if he has great harmonic concepts.Fantastic!
And what iron chops. Harmonic concepts and chops!

I actually like the way it sounds, I just don't understand it.
You know, I can handle about 10 seconds of millions of notes being played.
But if it is just for the sake of a million notes without any melody structure, then I get bored quickly.
Sorry not my cup of tea.
i guess i'm the opposite. while green, martino, and benson are great players, i don't think much of their writing. to me it wasn't until guitar players like metheny, abercrombie, and ralph towner came along that the overall level of composition caught up to the level of the playing (even though there are some wes montgomery tunes that i really dig!)but overall their compositions don't grab me so much. Seems there's less "swing" and groove in much of their music. I'd rather hear Grant Green, Martino, instrumental Benson. But there's no denying the deep musicality and creativity behind Rodgers, Moreno, Kreisberg, etc
Thanks for trying, but I wasn't familiar with the song, so I had no idea if he outlines the changes beautifully.How about this one? He outlines the changes beautifully.
