    Cool Tal Wilkenfeld on bass

    Outstanding performance! Each musician can only rely on him- or herself to know where they are and everything must still hang together, and it does. They are all playing completely free—the ultimate in fusion and jazz. Like worlds colliding!

    Mohini Dey blows away Wilkenfeld.

    Wilkenfeld is a good bass player. Mohini is one of the best in the world.

    As a piece of music, the Herbie Hancock composition is vastly superior, imo. And it is a composition. They are not all playing completely free, but the solos are interesting in their harmonic and rhythmic complexity. Especially Herbie!

    I am not familiar with Mohini Dey, but she obviously has mega chops, as does Marco Minnemann. I didn't care for the generic guitarists. I prefer Tal because I like soulful playing. I'm not interested in chops for chops sake. I would like to hear Dey in a different context as opposed to this crowd pleasing technical display. Marco can do anything and make it entertaining because he has a great sense of fun and humor. And he possesses the most ridiculous chops of any drummer I've ever listened to.
