    Just got into some Chris Potter and am really enjoying AR's work on the recordings.

    Been listening to some of his solo album clips and, while I love his playing in other styles as well, wonder if there are other funkier, settings he has recorded in.

    mmm? I first heard him on Brecker's Wide Angles. His comping and ensemble playing really impressed me. I know Adam has a Hendrix inspired recording coming out soon. Maybe that'll be funky.

    Have you heard the Lost Tribe albums? More fusiony/rock-influenced.

    Bailey and Juris did some jazz adaptions of Hendrix. Not sure it qualifies as funky...but it's pretty cool. I think midnight lamp in 7/8 for example.

    His solo albums are great. Check out Time and the Infinite.
    His supportive playing on Michael Brecker's Wide Angles is excellent.

    He has a couple of tracks with Dennis Chambers on Planet Earth CD that are super funky!
    Here is one called Elroy

    Love this recording; spent a bunch time trying (and failing) to get his voicing/timing on "Burr".

    There are a few Chris potter underground bootlegs out there that are definately worth listening to. Much much better than the albums in my opinion. That is real, dirty, polyrhythmic funk. I LOVE that music !!
