Sensational jazzer with deeply groovy band
This concert is a very good occasion to pull out the records of this exciting Saxophonist once more. The diversity of jazz in his catalogue is huge, but the tone is safe. There’s no mistake that you’re listening to a world-class musician and composer! The melody might suggest it’s something for everyone, but Potter never falls for clichés or self-indulgence. We experience magical breaks and jumps, big and small, that raise the songs to the place where the smile can only grow.
With their previous visit, it was clear that he is a band leader with steady hand on the wheel, but cool enough for the others to play loud in the back seat. We find it funky and fat, epic and memorable, a classic evening on the jazz scene!
Chris Potter – saxophone, David Virelles – piano, Joe Martin – bass, Marcus Gilmore – drums
