I'm very curious what other posters think of his playing. I think he's sensationally good but I know little about jazz even though I play a lot of jazz note for note transcriptions. Here are some of his videos:

Hi

He clearly has a lot of talent, and I wish I could play as well as him.
But I wouldn't go as far as some of the posters on the Watermelon Man video, who were making ridiculous claims on his behalf.
He isn't Herbie Hancock!

Maybe in 10 years time....

Cheers

His (?) arrangements for piano are much more mature and impressive than improvisations. Give him time to experience with professional American musicians; then we can seriously discuss.

Hi, PL! IMO, he definitely has a thorough sense of Jazz "feel" -- a sensitive ear for appropriate harmonic changes, and a great sense of the subtle rhythmic patterns of cadence and pulse associate with contemporary Jazz. Sensational? -- Well, I'd call it thoroughly professional: his arrangements/improvisations are deeply satisfying, but not riveting in their effect.
