LondonJazz: CD REVIEW: Chris Potter – The Dreamer Is The Dream

The improvisational power of saxophonist Chris Potter, his astonishing command of his instrument and his seemingly endless ideas when it comes to threading a single continuous line through the music, is easy to find overwhelming in a live situation, as I found out yet again when I saw him perform with his quartet last weekend at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. So it’s a real pleasure to sit down with this album because Potter’s playing is not quite so dominant when it is coming out of the hi-fi speakers, and there is space in this listener’s heart and mind to take in the leader’s – and the band’s – other strengths.
