Where is the love for this man?

I went up to New York from Philadelphia in April last year just to see his group. Saw him three nights in a row, best shows I've ever seen. His senses of rhythm and dynamics are unmatched, and there are records I've heard him on where I've thought "I don't know if there's anyone else who could've fit here." He's got incredible control and a unique style, shaped in part by his jams with Chris Dave when they were younger (the two are cousins), where they would play as freely as possible while in time. He's got a new album coming out this year (as well as an album with James Farm), and a new website launching at midnight this Sunday, Mountain Time.

Here's a sample from a record that's had a huge influence on me:
