Chris Potter Quartet
ft.Edward Simon, Scott Colley and Nasheet Waits
JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
A world-class soloist, accomplished composer, and formidable bandleader, Grammy® Award-nominated saxophonist Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Potter’s music showcases limitless creativity and a vibrant sense of swing, prompting critics, musicians, and fans alike to cite him as the one of the finest saxophonists today. The New Yorker calls Potter, ‘A tenorist who can remind you of Joe Henderson at his craftiest, he employs his considerable technique in the service of music rather than spectacle.’ Saxophonist Chris Potter has amassed a surprisingly large discography—over a dozen records as a leader, and collaborations that include a "many years old" relationship with bassist Dave Holland. His technical prowess, robust tone and uncanny control are matched by a seemingly endless imagination, allowing him to build extended solos that never lose focus. This time he brings his incredible quartet!
