Yup, dull music, for sure. This is the kind of thing talented young people do when they are finding out how far they can go - and also what older talented players do when they have great facility but not much into composition. Larry Carlton's solo work tends to smooth jazz wallpaper with mucho fretwankery, but his work with Steely Dan was fabulous.

Jess has loads of natural ability. It's a bit fanciful to predict anything based on one vid but I'll guess that she'll become a session player.
