Imaginary Cities

No reason not to take a quick break from weightier matters to discuss something more pleasant. Chris Potter is part of Pat Metheny’s Unity Band. Imaginary Cities is a personal project of his. It’s recorded on ECM and if you are a fan of the label’s predisposition towards airy, abstract jazz recordings then you won’t be disappointed. It’s a great album to listen to when you’re trying to get some (mental) work done. More information here.

    Is this an upcoming release? Other than one track on the album page and the above video I can’t find where to buy a copy.

    I like the concepts of mixing classical and jazz, your description is accurate, a while ago, you brought up Steely Dan and Aja, that is truly a timeless bit of music, that was iconic for the time it was produced.

    Chris Potter is a marvelous player. His bouts with vertigo have left him occasionally unable to play, which is a tragedy. I spent an entire month transcribing his tenor battle with Craig Handy on Mingus Big Band’s “O.P.”
