Saw him last time at BB's...although he was sick, (as in physically ill) that might be a testament to his playing that night...I'm not exactly running back to see him again tonight.  I liked the set but overall he's a very VERY monotonous and how-many-notes-can-I-fit-in-this-measure type "jazz monster."  Any guitarists out there feel free to bludgeon me.
