Awesome, I'm glad some other folks have an interest in this guy. Thanks for pointing me to the other thread, I never would have found it.

Yeah, most of what he's doing is just completely beyond me, but when I listen to it I just hear something so musical. He's one of those guys you uncover six new things every time you listen to a recording. I transcribed a Monder tune he was on and it was just crazy. The way he develops motifs and is able to imply a groove while playing every which way around it is just staggering.

britt - I saw you mentioned Chris Speed's Emit on the other thread. That's been one of my favorite recordings lately. I'll have to check out the Human Feel record, I've only heard Speak to It and Welcome to Malpesta.

On a sad, related note:
