Reading today's Sunday NY Times article on him. Now listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_fQrcEfXRU

This sort of talent is quite beyond any equivalent in classical, because so much more EXPERIENCE is required to improvise at this level.

But he's only 10; so where does that experience come from?

Can't quite figure that out.

In truth: I am gobsmacked by these videos. They impress me so much more than anything comparable in the classical world of prodigy.

I'm going to see him for myself May 27, at Scullers in Boston. He is perplexing.

I'm don't know enough about jazz piano improv to stick my neck out. But, off the top, I'm stunned. We know what Mozart did as a kid. But as amazing as that sort of talent is, it was very easy, at one level, to trace it to the trad he was trained in.

This kid can't be explained so easily (not that it's easy to "explain" Mozart (just one example))... because there's so much MUSIC that has to be absorbed and digested to do what he's doing at his age.
