I like your comments.
Track 1. I would not have thought of George Shearing with regard to this track, but it is an interesting comparison. Eddie Higgins is not on this track. It is from a later date than any of George Shearing's recordings.
Track 2. I agree with the Blue Note feel. It is not Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter.
Track 3. It is not Gerald Wilson.
Track 4. It is not Jack Wilson, but I understand why you would say that.
Track 5. Andrew Hill is an interesting comparison, but not correct. I like your comment about whole other level of intensity. I agree with that.
Track 6. Insightful comments about the guitar. It is not a 1970s fusion date. Bill Frisell is a good guess, but it is not him.
Track 7. You are making some excellent points. This is both authentically Latin and jazz aware. It is newer than any Herbie Mann. I think that Eddie Palmieri is still active, but it is not him.
Track 8. I agree that this is very accomplished piano. Not Hilton Ruiz.
Track 9..It is violin on top, not viola. Mat Maneri is a great guess, but it is not him.
Track 10. You do not have the instrumentation quite correct. This is an unusual album though. It is not Richard Galliano.
Track 11. That is an intriguing description of this track. It is not Gil Evans, but I can see why you would say that.
Track 12. Not Dick Dale, no.
Track 13. It is an exotica piece, and you have guessed right. It is a John Zorn project.
Track 14. There is no guitar synthesizer on this album. It is not David Fiuczynski.
