Moving In

Genre: Jazz; Lead Performer: Chris Potter

Young, prodigiously talented saxophonist Chris Potter doesn’t get quite as much ink as, say, reedmen James Carter or Joshua Redman, but he could show those whiz kids a thing or two. Having screened out cliches and attention-grabbing ploys, Potter relies on his warm, tactile tone, bounding rhythmic propulsion, and fresh ideas on his nine originals on Moving In. A graduate of the smart-guy school of saxophone playing. B+
