Hi. It's brilliant playing, highly skilled, insanely technical, extremely proficient, insightfully arranged, sublimely musical, and it became background music for me in less than a minute. In fact, I turned it off with, I see from scrolling back up to look, 20 seconds to go. It had become annoying. I don't think I'm dissing him, just trying to be honest, as in, critique. For me, there's something missing here. It feels like a rendition, not an immersion. Actually, it feels like an equation is being worked though. I'd love to have just a fraction of his talent, technique, musicality, etc. I also realise, knowing myself & my oh so meagre abilities,* how petty, potentially jealous and bitter I might sound. But the thing is, I really just don't give a rat's back area how competent someone is, as a thing in of itself. A certain style, type or piece might require a certain competence, and another demand far less. I get that, but it will never mean I hold the former automatically higher than the latter. I see this fairly often, where a high degree of musical accomplishment is lauded. If people are into that, great. It means they are gaining pleasure and enjoyment. And that is wonderful. One of the best things about music is there's a glove that fits everyone. Just this one doesn't fit me. Pax/ Dean * measured in the negative really - can't do X, can't do Y, barely able to Z, doesn't understand P, never heard of Q, etc.
