    First guy to solo. THATS the way to play on a one chord vamp!! :eek: Check out the keyboardist locking with him around 3:58 and his Kenny Garrett licks at 4:17. Incredible feel and pop/funk playing. Who is he??

    Solo starts at about 2:23

    I don't know any of the sax players, but that was George Duke on keys. That last sax player was just tearing it up, he sounded like he could have gone all night, guy was incredible.

    That's fantastic.

    I've heard that lick at 4:24 before somewhere, but I can't recall where?

    Daryl Stuermer is also a great guitar player.

    Wow...very cool. That sax solo was fantastic.
    He was getting into all kinds of sounds and phrasing.

    The only thing I wasn’t “jazzed” about was the trend where they extend all the comping parts double, triple or more of the main theme. To me that draws it out way too much. But, All there including the arranger are on a good deal higher level than me, still for me I would think it better and tighter to not overdo those parts.

    Here’s what I don’t get.
    Dudes are fair shredding on Le Sax, yet the camera focuses on their face?
    That’s like having a guitarist on screen and only focusing on their picking hand.
