Paganini Caprice no.24 Jazz version.

I don't know if sheet music is availale for this version or not - I imagine it is of his own doing and partly improvised. The chords are amazing - I have never heard anything like them on a solo string instrument from 2.08 onwards. Can anyone describe these chords or notate them? Fantastic stuff.

I love the way some of the comments talk about it as if he's desecrating some eternal masterpiece by playing his own variations. I personally much prefer this version!
