Chris Potter Underground

Chris Potter - tenor sax

Easily the most compelling saxophonist of his generation
Detroit Free Press

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
The New Yorker

Daring yet precise, with clean edges and unexpected implications… he is something special
DownBeat

Prodigiously talented saxophonist Chris Potter doesn’t get quite as much ink as, say James Carter or Joshua Redman, but he could show those whiz kids a thing or two
Entertainment Weekly

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.” Throughout his career, Potter has performed and recorded with artists as diverse as Steely Dan and Herbie Hancock, and has toured the world over with the Dave Holland Quintet, the Overtone Quartet, AZIZA, and the jazz-funk group, Chris Potter’s Underground. The Dreamer is the Dream, by the Chris Potter Quartet, is the current chapter in Potter’s storied career.
