This recording demonstrates Potter's modern approach to the blues. Potter's solo consists of angular lines and quirky intervallic melodies that merely hint at the traditional blues harmony, and his phrases loosely drape over the contours of the well-known blues structure. This gives the impression that the song is hanging in the balance between tradition and innovation.
