Different things.

Your first clip doesn't work well for me; when I first tried it, it didn't work at all. The second time it seemed garbled. So I'm not sure what that is.

In the 3rd clip, he's just playing very fast, very accurate linear runs. He was great at that.

In the second clip, he's playing "sheets of sound," a la Coltrane. If you use the search feature here, you can probably find a lot about that. There is something about it here: http://www.saxontheweb.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=4941&highlight=sheets+sound

I know what sheets of sound is. when I think of sheets of sound, I think of very clean, fast lines, ala giant Steps, Russian Lullaby, etc. After listening again it seems like Coltrane is doing that in the third clip, Africa. Art seems to be doing that but with an edge. I've tried playing random notes quickly using alternate fingerings and it produces a similar effect, but not really what i'm looking for.
