This is a remarkable album. Potter plays with great passion and intelligence, supported by musicians at the top of their game. The title track is quite stunning. I love the variation of themes throughout. This is a disc to play again and again with delight. I've seen Potter in concert several times and this is representative of his very best work.

Chris Potter has always been a modern master of both his instruments and his contribution to the ongoing development of modern 'jazz'. Eicher's production has added to the depth, while retaining the passion of Potter's soul. Track 4 - the title track is particularly mesmeric.

Chris Potter, the great saxophone player. I know him from Two against nature by Steely Dan. Wonderfull player. I saw him in The BIM house in Amsterdam. Great musician. Cd is very nice.

Little bit annoyed when first played this cd,expecting more of this saxmans rockfunk jazz fusion adventures and found a more traditional feel to the sound and playing after a couple of listens the saxman won me over with the different approach.Great music.

Put together a solid rhythm section with Grenadier on double bass and Harland behind the drums, a rich and sophisticated harmonic section with Tabor (piano) and Virelles (prepared piano, celeste, harmonium) often left free in seductive layers of improvisation, and above all Chris Potter (heard on soprano and tenor sax as well as bass clarinet), always dominating the scene with some passionate and energetic playing, presenting one after the other his original compositions (except for the last track penned by the two pianists) inspired by the reading of Homer's epic poem The Odyssey. I believe this is one of Mr. Potter most solid releases, possibly his best, to discover over and over again. Totally recommended!
