Man you play very good, you swing! I like how you bring out the sound of the hats in the groove...a la Art Blakey...i love that intention.
But if i can make you a constructive critic, i would say that you have to be careful to keep that energy for all the performance...you have to bite till the last moment of the tune and even more...i tell you this because i heard the tempo a little slower at the end...that is because the energy was not constant...i think it's better to arrive at the end with the tempo a little faster than a little slower.
Please this is a constructive critic, just think about that when you play, and you'll get a lot more.
Go ahead and i wish you all the best.
