    I took a lesson with him last year and he told he wrote the entire album in Sibelius instead of on guitar. I expect it will be very composed.

    I'm very interested to hear the difference (if any) between what he imagines and what he plays. (I'm thinking a composed work is more representative of what he imagines.)

    I like or love literally everything he has released, and live he's grown to be a legit force of nature.

    I believe Long to be Loose is his previous work that was highly if not completely composed, and that record is still as breath-taking to me today as when it was first released.

    @Redbell - I got the IOS book when it was first released, and just for completeness got the 2nd Ed not too long ago (kind of like having the K&R and ANSI editions of The C Programming Language :) ). I was also fortunate to be among (the least of) his students for a couple of years [1999-2001], and a lot of the material in the book was also covered in person. I've found it best, for me, to use it like I use the Mick Goodrick / Mr. Goodchord materials -- in small bites, chewed carefully and digested slowly. I don't think it's meant to be a method book per se, but rather in my experience something that works its way naturally into your playing and writing.

    All composed except for certain measures that were intentionally left "open" for a bit of improv. Definitely not your run of the mill AABA-solo-ABA type of tunes.
    I think it's a masterpiece.

    Definitely a masterpiece in my view as well. If I'm not mistaken, he's said he used long-form composition for that recording. Implied in the song titles.

    Loving this release so far. Yes...much more compositional approach on this one. WK on Rhodes is nice, and Potters" sax work is stellar. Highly recommended!

    He’s playing over at Iridium with Tim and Keith at the end of the month. My buddies and I are going, can’t wait, those three just cook together.

    What I've heard of the album is dope AF. The way music should be IMHO.

    Mrs. Blanket and I will be there. Always look forward to seeing KC&lF
