"Chris Potter is thriving. Easily among a handful of the best young saxophonists in contemporary acoustic jazz, the 27-year-old .. has been making albums for Concord jazz that are consistently wide in scope, imaginative in concept, and expansive in terms of both composition and improvisation. For the 'core bond on Vertigo ... his current exhilarating effort .. Potter surrounds himself with enthusiastic, first-rate musicians [Kurt Rosenwinkel - guitar, Scott Colley - bass, Billy Drummond - drums] .. artists who, like himself, embrace the jazz tradition yet are open to new ideas... Guest tenorman Joe Lovano, and Potter pair up with delicious results on three numbers.' - Zan Stewart, contributor Down Beat and Los Angeles Times FEATURING: Chris Potter - tenor & soprano saxophones, bass clarinet & piano Kurt Rosenwinkel - guitar Scott Colley - bass Billy Drummond - drums joined by: Joe Lovano - tenor saxophone (tracks 3, 6 & 8)
