Potter is known as a sideman of Dave Holland; perhaps also from the Steely Dan CD "Two Against Nature", where he shines with the longest sax solo in pop history. And he is a member of the jazz supergroup Aziza (feat. Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Lionel Loueke, Eric Harland).
Chris Potter, the saxophonist born in Chicago in 1971, is also a leader of several bands, a composer and a multiple Grammy Award nominee. He has recorded numerous CDs with a wide variety of musicians; he is simply a jazz multitasker.
The Chris Potter Quartet picks up where their predecessors left off. There is a constant experimentation with forms, a powerful, courageous trying out of new things. The quality of the Chris Potter Quartet is also due to the group's incredibly tight interplay. Venezuelan-born pianist Edward Simon enriches the sound with his Latin American influences. Bassist Scott Colley, with his wonderfully smooth tone, and drummer Nasheet Waits, with his fluid rhythm, ensure that the bandleader can really do whatever comes to mind with his various saxophones - and the band follows him blindly.
Chris Potter, who draws from a vast melodic fund with a startling lack of pretension and shows off a surprising power of imagination, is one of the most influential and complete saxophonists of his generation. The renowned American DownBeat Magazine wrote about Chris Potter: "One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet" and the old master on the saxophone, Dave Liebman, called him "one of the best musicians around" - fair enough!
