Jackson Potter: Restless

Clean toned guitarist Jackson Potter carries the swinging mainstream strings of the likes of Herb Ellis on this hip collection of mostly originals with a simpatico team of Patrick Leavy/b, Gibb Mandish/dr, Leo Folsom/p and guests David Mason/as, Joey Curreri/tp and Carter Key/ts. The three horns rock hard on the festive “Restless” with dust flying everywhere, while Mason bops with the best on the easy swinger “Bird Flu”. Potter displays nimble fingers on his dash with Leavy on “Falling Grace” and gets into some rich subtones on the spacious “Mulberry Tree”. Leavy creates a nice undercurrent for lyrical work on “Sophia’s Waltz” and converses well with the leader on Horace Silver’s “Peace” Curreri bops well under Potter’s guidance on “Hindsight is 2020” and the lines are polished and warm on the breezy “Amalfi”. A floating ax Elisha would be proud of.
