Bob Danziger demonstrates how the Brandenburg 300 Project recordings were done. This video combined excerpts from Brandenburg 23 with John Coltrane's solo on Giant Steps. The technique featured on this video is "comping," essentially a process of recording multiple takes of the same music and then picking out the best performances of each bar and combining them in to one line.
Bob Danziger is playing the EWI - the Akai Electronic Wind Instrument - with which he played most of his parts on the Brandenburg 300 Project.
The "comping technique" has been in use for several decades, ever since the advent of multitrack tape recorders. The EWI is a relatively obscure MIDI controller that is known for exceptional expressiveness, but can only play one note at a time.
