I don't know if this video was discussed at the time it came out, but I just rewatched it and really enjoyed it.
Then I made the mistake of reading the comments. Most were very positive, but then there was this :
Actually I completely disagree. It's really lacking solid enough feel. It's something that has plagued Peter for years now. Two things would make this sound like it's trying to sound: 1) The interpretation of the percentage of swing in a 16th note grid is not locked in across the entirety of the ensemble. 2) That percentage needs to be cranked up a little bit in Peter's interpretation for it to really sound like it's in the pocket, and he needs to play more aggressively and many more ghosted notes to get the real feel the song is trying to accomplish in terms of the swing pocket.
I don't hear any of these problems in the performance. Are my ears just not suble enough to hear what he's talking about, or is this guy just full of it ? Does anyone else feel this way about Peter's playing in general ?
