He has super-duper chops. He's got extreme speed, coordination, knows where the good notes are, has a lot of playing experience, and is a piano genius of some sort. You can almost say he's one of those players with more technique than he knows what to do with.

Hi

Well I have to confess I'd never heard of him. So I just looked him up.
Yes he is astoundingly good. I only looked at 2 videos, the one below contains some pretty amazing playing:

I've been initially fascinated with him. His technique is frightening. But then, I realized there's nothing really interesting to me in his music. He never creates a proper solo the way I like it, gradually evolving, logical, well-thought, he starts with the fireworks right off and that's not something I listen to. There's also this girl Domi who is also similarly impressive but I have the same problem with her. Jazz is not only flashy technique. Also reminds me Jacob Collier, another YouTube star, famous for doing some crazy rich vocal harmonies and stuff but ultimately it gets boring after some time. It's like being fascinated with curry spice and adding it in extreme quantities to every dish you make.

I'd say he's an awesome player and there's no way anyone could deny his musicianship either. I appreciate his techniques and everything else that goes into his performance, but at the same time if I were allowed to make a general comment, I would say this. Almost everything sounds like a demo for a product...be it either a sound or instrument. The composition itself seem to be less important. That's the vibe I'm getting from his public performances.

I took a video of him at NAMM 2020 and didn't even realize it was him because he had lost so much weight.

Jesus has put a lot of hours in the woodshed in and that key. He started on sax and later switch to piano. Also he has huge hands I've watched him stretch and play 11ths and his ears are great. He got a full ride scholarship to Berklee so he's logged a lot of hours studying. So he's worked for his abilities and earned it.

I'm one whose fought weight issues my whole life so his big loss in a short time intrigued me. I found out he had a pretty major weight loss surgery. So that's a pretty big commitment too because it changes how you eat and digest food the rest of your life.

Here's the video that always blows me away.

Thx!!! That's a nice trio! Would of loved to be at that tapa bar. I also heard an interview with him about a week ago. Seems soft spoken, great heart. He's very young too, I have my shades on with him, bright!: Sorry CyberGene you got my ire up! And Domi Degualle OMG!!..How can you refer to an 18 year old French girl who was born again when she first heard Kieth Jarrett`s "The Koln concert", boring! She's quite a wizard, and with that drummer JD Beck, I think he's 16..Just awesome. Thx again Andrew for posting that trio set!
