I thought Sam tagged the melody pretty hard at least 4 times in that performance.  Thanks for sharing this.  An interesting work in progress.

The only things I could have said were: 1... the drummer should have been doing a jazz waltz beat. 2...the drummer should have been using brushes. 
Otherwise, I understood it as modern or 'open' jazz, and not necessarily a progressive jazz. Soooo, thumbs up.
