“‘Imaginary Cities’ is a breakthrough for Potter as composer, arranger and conceptualist. The title piece, a four-movement suite, portrays Potter’s ‘non-specific utopian ideas’ about what modern urban life might be. Its richness and depth are stunning. […] The suite also provides unprecedented inspiration for Potter the soloist. He has never played on record with more focus and power.” - Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times
“The centrepiece of this vivid, richly detailed and emotionally engaging album is the four-movement “Imaginary Cities Suite”. Here, Potter captures a utopian vision of crisis, regeneration and integration with sweeping strings, edgy rhythms and lashing’s of Potter’s sax. The album is completed by four equally strong impressionist pieces.” - Mike Hobart, Financial Times.
