An Urban Myth: Chris Potter Circuits Quartet feat. Craig Taborn at Porto's Casa da Música

Read "An Urban Myth: Chris Potter Circuits Quartet feat. Craig Taborn at Porto's Casa da Música" reviewed by Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah


Circuits the Record, Circuits the Quartet.The record Circuits (Edition, 2019) makes use of production as a means to architecturally bring to bay today's average, one may say alienated jazz listener, the “grooveland" referenced by Potter merely an excuse and hardly the verdict in this trial.
