Event Description

A world-class soloist, accomplished composer and formidable bandleader, saxophonist Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. DownBeat called him “One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet” while Jazz Times identified him as “a figure of international renown.” Jazz sax elder statesman Dave Liebman called him “one of the best musicians around.” No wonder  DownBeat readers voted him second only to tenor sax giant Sonny Rollins in the magazine’s Readers Poll.


Potter continues to establish himself as one of the premier saxophonists alive today, working steadily with his own groups as well as jazz legends Dave Holland, Herbie Hancock, John Scofield, and Pat Metheny. The Grammy-nominated saxophonist has released 15 albums as a leader and appeared on over 100 albums as a sideman.
