Hmmm, more like noise intended to mimic music. On a purely technical basis, leaving aside his loathsome personality, he just isn't very good at the music thing. What Tom does is the equivalent of running your hands across a piano keyboard, with just a little more coherence. Much like you can understand the mechanics of how to drive a car, what the pedals do, using the brake, etc., and yet still be unable to actually drive in any real sense. I'll paypal Tom $50 for footage of him playing a recognisable tune with a band.
Listen to this and tell me this is a good version of "Take Five"... Timing's off and inconsistent, vibrato's terrible, note choices are odd (even in a jazz context), whole thing is a mess.
Who is that sexy lady?
