Agreed - one of the issues I have with many modern classical soloists is in their desire to demonstrate demonic solo agility, they lose sight of the music....At least he can keep on the right side of "frenetic" as too many soloists seem unable to do. Lovely Nat Adderley piece - I do like it when they play together on stage.
I take it you don't get on with Oscar Peterson either.... Funny, while I agree with you on the too many notes, Peterson is OK for me, but.... Canonball not. Perhaps it's because Peteron is more melodic."Too many notes, Herr Mozart" ....can't say I agreed with the Archduke, but, in the case of jazz, I am inclined to the 'less is more' viewpoint...can't stand frenetic playing, which just sounds like showing-off 'technical' skills.
