I actually was at this gig! Ben was a last minute sub for John Abercrombie in this concert series that takes place at my very own Follen Church in Lexington. It was somewhat odd to hear Ben play on that stage, the same stage where I read my now infamous credo (@Jeffrey Gordon) and preformed seemingly hundreds of wholesome skits about God (or the lack thereof; Follen is Unitarian Universalist).
The sixth tune of the night was a very freely interpreted version of Body and Soul. At the end of the head out, Porter and Monder each play a cadenza. I remember being struck by Ben's; particularly the attention he gives to motives and repetition, and the way he connects improvised material to the melodic content of the head. Here is the recording (a decodingmonder exclusive):

I can't believe I have heard this today. It was such a good music! I can even use this as a lullaby at night because calm songs are what I really love. I do even save some of Yiruma songs because the songs give me peace every time I play it. And it's a good thing because I can now put another set of songs on my playlist. I just still need to find if you have included some other songs here on your website. I really hope so because I feel so excited about this. Thanks for letting us know and introducing your talent to us.
