CD: Chris Potter, Steve Wilson, Et Al

Thumbnail image for Coming Together.jpgChris Potter, Steve Wilson, Terell Stafford, Coming Together (Inarhyme). This was to have been the recording debut in 2005 of the young tenor saxophonist Brendan Romaneck. That year he died at 24 in a traffic accident. In his memory, saxophonists Potter and Wilson, trumpeter Stafford and a fine rhythm section completed the project. Eight of the compositions are Romaneck’s. Three are standard songs. Potter is compelling with a pianoless trio on “My Shining Hour.” Wilson and Stafford shine on Romaneck’s daring “Minion.” Pianist Keith Javors, bassist Delbert Felix and drummer John Davis are strong throughout.
