Unbelievable. I usually prefer expression over virtuosity, but this looks like a fine combination of both. I'm going to have to set my goals a little lower than this with my 'twice a week half hour' practice schedule...

For me number one
As brilliant as NHOP is. What the hell was he thinking at 4.20 and then going into playing a Bach Cello suite ?  It messes up the intricacy of his gorgeous themes on a samba.

+dmbassa You're aware most walking bass lines are improvised right? Have you see his duets with Joe Pass? He has solos in just about every song. Hear him on Donna Lee. Sorry man, but I think your nit pick is completely unfounded.

+dmbassa "Any mediocre in jazz can". Of course. You should try to improvise one of these days. It's the easiest thing on earth. People who say this are people who think jazz is just a bunch of nonsense notes and blues scales
