Check out his work with Weather Report, his work with Alison Krauss and even his live work with Steely Dan. I think I appreciate him because of his understanding of space - listen to Steely Dan's Third World Man off the Live in America CD. Fantastic!

Here's a clip for those unfamiliar with his work.
