Description

Ever-fearless as a bandleader and composer, Imaginary Cities may be Potter’s most ambitious project yet. This date features Potter’s Underground Orchestra, an expansion of his core Underground Quartet that features a contingent of strings and a doubled rhythm section, all built around Potter’s luxurious sounds on saxophone and bass clarinet. This lush instrumental setting, at once evocative of contemporary chamber music and the seminal Charlie Parker with Strings, provides a launching pad for Potter’s freewheeling woodwind acrobatics.
