The American saxophonist Chris Potter - Columbia, South Carolina – can boast a curriculum vitae including famous names like Dave Douglas, Steely Dan, Jim Hall, Ray Brown and Dave Holland. As a leader he recorded countless CD’s under his own name. The saxophonist straddles the world of old-time bebop players and the universe of free, expressive exploration. With his modern jazz quartet, featuring the incredibly strong playing drummer Nate Smith, he excels in the domain of funk and fusion. But Potter also explores pop music – just listen to his latest CD Underground. Potters is considered the best saxophone player of his generation. The energy he displays at his concerts, makes him worthy of the title. Besides the hysterical, almost imploring sustained notes in his solo’s, he also produces warm, good-natured tones.
