Chris Potter Quartet at Jazz Bakery's Movable Feast Series at The Musicians Institute Venue

2 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2013-02-28 2013-02-28 35 Chris Potter Quartet at Jazz Bakery's Movable Feast Series at The Musicians Institute Venue ONE SHOW ONLY - NO INTERMISSION!

Chris Potter's album, Underground manages to stay true to its brand of gritty, muscular funk while expanding its repertoire and bringing in other outside influences. The end result is a superbly constructed group effort. Potter, a potent improvisor and the youngest musician ever to win Denmark's Jazzpar Prize, Potter's impressive discography includes 15 albums as a leader and sideman appearances on over 100 albums. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for his solo work on "In Vogue," a track from Joanne Brackeen's 1999 album Pink Elephant Magic, and was prominently featured on Steely Dan's Grammy-winning album from 2000, Two Against Nature. He has performed or recorded with many of the leading names in jazz, such as Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, John Scofield, the Mingus Big Band, Jim Hall, Paul Motian, Dave Douglas, Ray Brown and many others.

His most recent recording, Ultrahang, is the culmination thus far of five years' work with his Underground quartet with Adam Rogers on guitar, Craig Taborn on Fender Rhodes, and Nate Smith on drums. Recorded in the studio in January 2009 after extensive touring, it showcases the band at its freewheeling yet cohesive best.
