Vital, Intriguing - Jazz at its Best
Vital, playful, intriguing, interplay between some of today's best jazz musicians. On this album Chris Potter lets us know why he ranks among the top sax players of our time. No doubt about it. Not for the easy listening/ smooth jazz set, Potter's playing takes you to edge without ever losing a sense of melody and composition; continually yielding to that space where the dance is, these musicians show what great empathy and talent can do. Antonio Sanchez, Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny, Robert Glasper, Ari Hoening, and Chris Potter (among so many others) are bringing a sense of immediacy of what jazz is. Give it a listen. You'll be glad you did.
