Very good technically, to be sure. Can play rings around me.

That being said, I didn't finish either cut. Both became 'Well, we know you can do that' pretty quickly. To me, it's kinda like the harp player or guitarist who just solos over everything. After a couple of minutes, you just want to say 'stop it'!

Thanks for posting, though. It's really good to see what else is going on outside my musical bubble.
Play. Just play.

Eli Eckert of Once And Future Band (my latest discovery).

Hints of 70's prog/jazz/Steely Dan/etc. But with some modern sensibilities, too.
