Synopsis

Amazon.com
Trumpeter Dave Douglas has a tight, tense tone capable of streaking across the sky of his compositions in fiery, intense flashes. Here, paired with like-minded tenor saxophonist Chris Potter, Douglas is capable of lighting entire songs with his luminous horn. For his part, Potter provides the shadow and nuance, adding an uncommon depth to these tone paintings. Balanced against the bass of James Genus and the percussion of Ben Perowsky, these songs are nimble and sure, moving from point to point, mood to mood with confidence and absolute precision. For fans of Douglas, this is among his finest moments (see also: 1995's stunning In Our Lifetime, the Douglas/Han Bennink duet disc Serpentine, and Douglas's work with John Zorn's Masada). For fans of well-constructed, well- played jazz sparking with energy and ideas, this is a no-brainer. --S. Duda
 

CD Reviews

Serious and fun.
Douglas T Martin | Alpharetta, GA USA | 12/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Both serious and fun. The serious side sounds like Miles, the fun side sounds like Ornette. A good recording by the same band that recorded "Leap of Faith". Highly recommended."
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

"This is the bombest Dave Douglas CD I've yet to hear. It's just lean, stripped down music. These four have such beautiful chemistry together: Ben Perowsky's expansive boom-and-floom sound nestles perfectly into James Genus' pillar-of-stone bass sound. Chris Potter (playing tenor throughout) and Dave Douglas voice the melodies together so perfectly together, like a vine twined around the trunk of a tree.
Simply, they hit it all the way."
Aspiring young trumpet player from the bay area.

"What an impressive CD!!! Ranked up there w/ his sextet, his quartet explodes w/ a high level of creativity and spontaneity. What an awesome combination having Douglas work w/ Chris Potter. I gotta say they compliment each other's playing very well. This is a must buy!"
