The first incarnation of Chris Potter’s Underground Quartet in 2006 was a full-volume blast of collective virtuosity and urban grime infused with the spiky bass lines and rhythmic layers of Craig Taborn’s Fender Rhodes piano. [Today] the grit and fluency remains intact and are equally compelling but are delivered at an acoustic level more in keeping with the saxophonist’s current label, ECM. Taborn is replaced by holding-role bassist Fima Ephron, making for a more orthodox sax and rhythm jazz quartet that brings out individual skill as much as crunchy collectivity. And with Potter and guitarist Adam Rogers fully focused and playing at full stretch, skill is in generous supply.
