A great post, mabraman! Robust, thoroughly inventive -- really closer to modern classical than jazz; one of the best syntheses I've ever heard.

I made a chord chart because I prefer Brad's changes over the usual Coltrane changes everybody else seems to use.

Me too (as a listener). And I like how he plays the rythm structure of the main theme here and there, changing the tone and insisting (or exploring) on some ideas, as if he was playing some symphony. Finally, I love the way he delays the resolution of the "tragical" part. It's so expressive!
I'm very fond of jazz, but so often musicians make it mean nothing, they seem to play for themselves and other jazzmen, using progressions that are too abstract, too difficult to connect with unless you know the whole theory.

I agree, Printer, but I just didn't want to demerit such a good performance with my comments. Besides, although I don't "understand" what he's playing from a player's point of view, I emotionally "understand" (and react to) every single note, and his entire approach to this piece.

Mabraman! You MIGHT be underestimating your abilities and your powers of observation! From reading (again) what you wrote, some basis cells of what one could practice to get to a BM kind of space are there! In your post. !

Another resource to rely on is the connection you mention to BM's music! Really looking to "channel" yourself through BM (or anyone you like) is a pretty amazing thing to try. Actually, Fred Hersch (BM's main teacher), discusses channeling (in his own learning) in interviews all over the place. FM may well be the master channeler! Another way to say this is trying to imitate any facet at all of anyone who's playing we like is be a great way to add things to our own styles we might not otherwise have.

What I'm not saying is it's easy to get to BM or FH space or that space isn't at an extremely extremely high level! And I'm not saying any of this is easy! (But it is fun!)

Really ... I mean this all in the most helpful way!
