A tour de force by one of the greatest saxophonists on the international scene today. There is a pulsing energetic feel to the album drawing on plenty of texture, the writing a meaty construction that depends on intuitive band interplay and intimacy, Potter here with hot new keyboardist James Francies, legendary drummer Eric Harland, with the bass guitar of Linley Marthe on four tracks — great that this this is on a UK label too and sounds so bright and organic.
Quiana Lynell is to release A Little Love this spring. The singer is joined on the Brian Bacchus-produced album to be released by Concord by pianist Cyrus Chestnut and drummer Jamison Ross among others in the personnel.
Terence Blanchard is a fan and has commented: “Quiana Lynell was already a vocal presence. When I first heard her sing, my initial thought was ‘Who are you, where have you been, and why am I just hearing you now?”
