Another guy I met and heard first at a BGSU clinic. his playing is in the Bop tradition, but is modern sounding. Not that he uses any effects besides a touch of reverb, but his ideas and lines are definitely bop distilled, although they don't sound dated at all. I doubt this record would be 100% accessible if you are not into jazz, but the playing is high quality.
