Kurt Rosenwinkel's Magic

This lick appears at about 32 secs into the track Safe Corners from Kurt's Remedy album.  It points to the kind of left hand propulsion that I think is one his trademarks.  These licks that just jump off of the guitar like a Romanian gymnast's tumbling routine.  It's an inspired flourish in the middle of a beautiful improvised intro.   When I met Kurt once and had the opportunity to ask what I should be doing to improve as a guitarist he said simply, "connect your voice to your guitar." This recording is a fine example of how he has done just this.
