Indeed.  And my brother says (he got it from somewhere else) that basically 
everyone  just has one original idea (and some less than that) and they keep 
repeating  themselves with variations. The more I think about it, the more right 
I think  he is.

I completely disagree with this statement.  I have played with too  many 
wonderful musicians, who have original ideas almost every night.   Those ideas are 
NOT variations on some nebulous idea that they had a few years  ago, or even 
last night. I do have to say that the musicians I am thinking about  are not 
necessarily traditional jazz players.
