His solo “Bloodcount” turned Strayhorn’s ballad into a geodesic dome, with the guitarist surrounding the melody with sagely architected variations. That’s somewhat standard with Bernstein, whose terrific touch is best heard in a solo setting such as this evening’s. He’s all about a deep sense of swing and inventive deconstruction strategies.
