The compositions on Underground are heavily influenced by funk music, and are reminiscent of Dave Holland's quintet, of which Potter was a member. "Nudnik" is a groove-based piece whose mixed-meter phrases give it a lilt and an unexpected quality. The beginnings and ends of phrases are surprising. Potter's raucous improvisation over the changing meters is executed with great precision, and the backdrop provided by Craig Taborn's Rhodes and Wayne Krantz's guitar fluidly glides between the ethereal and the rock-hard.
