I'm not sure we disagree @Wally. I'm sure he knows his stuff. But I'm equally sure sure he wasn't sitting there at 250+ interminable concerts a year, high as kite, going "ok, here's were I throw in some G mixoydian and then I'll wow them with E phrygian, and bring it back with a chromatic turnaround". No way. He played what he heard in his head. Which I respect. His taste and style are not for me, but that is not a put down. Nor meant to say he's a hack.
