Agreed--a great record by a a wonderful player. It's one of life's cruel ironies that he was robbed of the ability to play at the end of his life. But what a superb talent, and he left us quite a legacy. His solo album, in particular, is unique and definitely worth checking out, I think. Intimate, warm, lush... tough to do it justice with adjectives.
