This is a gem of a disc. I don't recall seeing any reviews at the time of it's release but it deserves recognition as a milestone in Potter's development.
From a glance at the track listing, which namechecks Potter's saxophone forefathers, one could be forgiven for thinking one was in for a tribute album or, worse still, a pastiche. However. what Potter achieves is an impressive collection of compositions which doff their cap in the direction of the great players to whom he owes the debt of Gratitude of the title, but on which (with the possible exception of Euridice, for Wayne Shorter) he has never sounded more like himself.
Anyone who has seen Chris Potter live will know what a fabulously inventive inproviser he is, something that his previous solo studio efforts have failed to do full justice to. To my ears there has always been a slight self-consciousness about his playing. However, here, he exhibits a sheer delight in both his ability and the instrument. It is apparent that he's enjoying the ride in both the solo and ensemble passages.
And what an ensemble! He may have recorded in more 'prestigious' company, but seldom has he had more empathic musicians around him in a studio setting than here. Brian Blade's propulsively swinging drumming is worth a particular mention. Never obtrusive or overstated, he provides a solid platform for the improvisers whilst maintaining a seemingly effortless, dazzling inventiveness just below the surface of the melody.
If you're thinking of buying a Potter disc, start here. Great musicianship and a collection of tunes that repay repeated listening.
