I've got to respect that you've played this exactly how you wanted it to sound. Some of it I really dig other aspects are kind of strange to my ears. In the head and a few other parts you use a soft approach to your tone that swells, kind of a wah wah sound without the second wah. Not sure about this. I do like your careful use of very slow vibrato as this gives it a very laid back almost sleepy time feel. Don't know if that's what you intended but the head feels like a series of yawns (but doesn't make me yawn). It certainly kept my attention. The vibrato is back to "normal" speed later, which is an interesting contrast.
Tone as always excellent and the improv finely done. Altogether I like it a lot, but just find the head very, well,...different. By 3 1/2 minutes it's anything but sleepy.
After a few more listens I think I like this better any any other rendition I've heard, and the strangeness is growing on me.
The improv 2nd chorus was great, controlled and very tastefully done. The head Hmmmm! the big bends into notes thing sounded kinda lazy on this one. I know it's what you wanted to to do. But to me the listener that's how it came over..Overall it sounded great and was one of the better versions I've heard of this tune.:welldone
