For this special Jazz Standard engagement, saxophonist Chris Potter leads an expanded version of his supercharged Underground band augmented by a string quartet. It’s a new direction for the ECM record­ing artist and longtime member of Pat Metheny’s Unity Band, who has released over fifteen albums as a leader and performed with a staggering list of major artists ranging from Dave Holland to Steely Dan. In the Down Beat 2014 readers’ poll, Potter was voted the Number One saxopho­nist in jazz. “There are moments, in the tumble of a typical improvisation, when Chris Potter seems to be embarked on a hero’s journey,” wrote The New York Times’ Nate Chinen in his review of a 2011 per­formance. “With his strong, focused tone and top–to–bottom proficiency on the horn, he brings a robust physical presence to his playing and an onward–driving sense of purpose.”
