I went to the late show on Saturday night, and brought a group of my students as well. The set was sold out, which I thought was pretty cool.
Anyway, as for the show itself, it was typical, really high-quality stuff from the group. When I last saw them in February, there was a moment of pure transcendence in their performance of the tune Togo--there was no single moment as stunning as that on Saturday, but they are so rare...
I think the highlight for me was the encore, which was Lotus Blossom. Potter did an unaccompanied solo/intro that continually hinted at and referenced the melody. It was really creative and was really well crafted, and just beautifully played.
In general, Potter seemed to me to be experimenting even more than usual with the rhythmic possibilities of his playing. I spoke to him briefly as I was walking out and mentioned that I admired the fact that he seems to be continually evolving his playing--there's always something different about each one of his performances, and I've seen him 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years--and his answer to me was that he was "restless." Interesting sentiment.
So, like usual, the Potter show was absolutely worth the time and money!
