I think we're all agreed you're unique, Pete....It's true, traditionally, unique cannot be modified. Like the word virgin, there are not degrees, either you are or you aren't. But years of abuse of the word has actually made terms like almost unique part of the language as she is spoke, so we have to accept that.
In this case though, although modesty would make me argue I am not a great player, merely a playe. It is not unique for a player to conceive of a saxophone. Take Peter Ponzol for example.
