We’ve had the blessing of hearing him pull in more relaxed settings where he’s nothing to prove, and it has been sublime. I wish that could be captured on a recording, but when it’s a concert/performance setting he seems to go, in our opinion and not really to our liking, a bit OTT - meaning hat to our ears he seems to try too hard and that seems to show in the listen. It is impressive, and it catches my attention as I lean forward with interest, but my feet don’t move…
