Rather than take the album out with a flurry of oddness, Corstens and crew finish up with "Blublu," a punchy uptempo swinging vehicle for the saxophonist to demonstrate his inventiveness on tenor over multiple choruses (this track could appeal to late-period, small-group Mingus fans); "Zakken en Balen," a ballad that in many ways mirrors the earlier "3 Vliertjes"; and "De Maan
Now in his early 40s, Chris Potter is the most commandingly skilled saxophonist of his generation, according to New York Times jazz writer Nate Chinen. Potter and JazzSet host Dee Dee Bridgewater have just come off three months with the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour, traveling the country by bus.
