This is as much blues as you'll ever hear from me.   It's just not my thing 
so apologies in  advance.

Too bad, as the blues playing is pretty cool. Out of all these 3 players,  
Chris stabs with shorter ideas, plays space between them and works these shorter 
 ideas out in the form of theme and variation. Take note when he brings the  
back-up band down early on in the jam. There is one point where, at least to 
me,  he is begging the band to join him on an accent at the end of a phrase 
that he  plays a few times. Too bad they didn't pick up on that. This is where 
true  communication between musicians lives.
