I have been listening to Potter for a while but avoided this CD because, as a bass player myself, I was 'unimpressed' by the absence of Potter's regular sideman Scott Colley. one of my favourite musicians. Thanks to the wonders of Spotify and a couple of hours to kill, I finally got to listen to FTRL today. It's a monster! It reminds me, in spirit and energy, of that marvellous CD of Antonio Sanchez with Colley and saxophonists David Sanchez and Miguel Zenon, also recorded live in New York. The tunes are long, most are in excess of 10 minutes, but the buzz being created by these four musicians is so energising, it makes you want to get your own horn out and 'get involved'! The band is Potter, Adam Rogers (guitar), Craig Taborn (piano) & Nate Smith (drums), each of them a master musician. There is talk of rock and fusion influences in other reviews here and I am not going to disagree but I just hear great, great Jazz.
Time well spent.
