Imaginary cities by Chris Potter( Recording )

11 editions published in 2015 in 4 languages and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Potter: tenor and soprano saxophones, bass clarinet Adam Rogers: guitars Craig Taborn: piano Steve Nelson: vibraphone, marimba Fima Ephron: bass guitar Scott Colley: double bass Nate Smith: drums Mark Feldman: violin Joyce Hammann: violin Lois Martin: viola Dave Eggar: cello Imaginary Cities is the recording premiere of saxophonist Chris Potter s new Underground Orchestra. At the core of this larger ensemble is the personnel of his long-established Underground quartet with Adam Rogers, Craig Taborn and Nate Smith now joined by two bassists, a string quartet, and Potter s old comrade from Dave Holland Quintet days, vibes and marimba man Steve Nelson. The title composition is a suite, panoramic in its reach, with movements subtitled Compassion , Dualities , Disintegration and Rebuilding . The scope of the work, and its contrasting moods and thematic development, inspire some of Potter s finest playing. His saxes fly high above his idealized cityscapes or launch into dialogues or group improvising with its gifted inhabitants. Four further pieces Lament , Firefly , Sky and Shadow Self extend the feeling of the suite, successfully combining both tightly written material and very open areas involving all members of the orchestra. References are multi-idiomatic and multicultural, and Potter, who counts Charlie Parker with Strings amongst his formative enthusiasms, had Arabic and Indian string sections in mind, as well as contemporary composition, when shaping this material. Imaginary Cities was recorded in December 2013 in New York s Avatar Studio and produced by Manfred Eicher. Release of the album is followed by US performances with the Underground Orchestra in New York and San Francisco

Lost in a dream by Paul Motian Trio( Recording )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Birth of a great new band, captured live at New York's celebrated Village Vanguard, with repertoire emphasizing Paul Motian's wonderful ballad writing. New Motian tunes are juxtaposed with previously recorded ones. A free exploration of Irving Berlin's "Be Careful It's My Heart" completes a program distinguished by gloriously supple playing from all three participants who are in tune at a high level. Or, as the New York Times noted, reviewing the concerts from which this album was drawn: "The accumulated wisdom within the band was clear."
The dreamer is the dream by Chris Potter( Recording )

16 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For his third ECM release as a leader, Chris Potter - an artist who "employs his considerable technique in service of music rather than spectacle," says The New Yorker - presents a new acoustic quartet that naturally blends melodic rhapsody with rhythmic muscle. The group includes superlative musicians well known to fans of ECM's many recordings from New York over the past decade: keyboardist David Virelles, bassist Joe Martin and drummer Marcus Gilmore, who each shine in addition to the leader
