Bobby Hutcherson has been a huge influence on my playing. His interpetation of Wise One is soooo deep.. this is my version of the tune done this last weekend in eugene oregon. first time i had ever played this tune beyond my house and the first time i played this tune with this crew up in eugene oregon.

I hear the influence, TMac. Sounds cool.

Wall of sound/stair steps (2:03); rhythmic playing on one note; deep motor; space; letting a high note ring.

Did I miss anything?

Very good.
