This track, from Potter's debut recording as a leader, foreshadows the brilliant career that lay ahead of the young saxophonist. He was 21 when this CD was made, although the language with which he improvises is far beyond his years. Reminiscent of Joe Henderson, Potter's solo demonstrates his virtuosic technique, and provides a glimpse of the rhythmic and motivic techniques he perfects and employs in his later work.
