Point.
âOften it seems Brad is working with more than the normal complement of fingers. Latin rhythms tend to sneak in frequently. Sometimes, it's a progressive series of delicately shaded chords; sometimes the music bubbles and fizzes like champagne, occasionally,
a suspicion of boogie woogie. Lovely stuff, and very listenable.â
