Hot. If you can do that for an hour without repeating yourself during solos, then you should be acknowledged as a jazz pro on the stick, at least as far as single note improvisation is concerned. Get someone who regularly contributes to wikipedia to make a page for you.

God Damn! How on earth can you do THAT??? Amazing! Congratulations Brett! Got to go practice!! :o

I will be making a series of instructional videos based upon some of my approaches. The first in the series should be made over my winter break. Not pro production level just sharing some concepts. More on this soon.

He should be acknowledged as a jazz pro on the Stick. No need for any qualifications.

Hmmmn, I hereby bestow the title of "jazz pro" to Brett.

Only rock guys can give that title out, by the way... Lol

I second Scott's bestowal though I am more of a psychedelic myself.

I third it but I did see a statement in a publication by a reputable source that being able to play for an hour and improvise during the solo sections without repeating yourself was the mark of a pro. If Brett's not there yet, I'm sure he will be...maybe tomorrow. :D

Brett .... incredibly impressive! I have watched the video 6-7 times now and , holy SHYTE!!! You are moving and grooving, fluid, smooth, and you make it appear effortless. I can't even imagine how much work was involved, and how long it took you to get this down pat. I'm 10 months in and I can't begin to even imagine playing like that ever!! 5 thumbs up!!!

IMHO, there is no discussion about whether you are a "jazz pro"... watch... listen.... that's all the proof I needed!
