Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features GRAMMY® Award-Winning & 9x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Saxophonist, Composer & Bandleader CHRIS POTTER on Wednesday March 2 at 7:30 P.M. Chris Potter will perform with Multi-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Double Bassist LARRY GRENADIER & Multi-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Drummer ERIC HARLAND as part of the Chris Potter Trio.

A world-class soloist, accomplished composer and formidable bandleader, GRAMMY® Award-Winning Saxophonist Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Most recently, Potter received two GRAMMY® Award Nominations in 2018 for “Best Jazz Instrumental Album” (‘The Dreamer is the Dream’) & “Best Improvised Jazz Solo” – bringing his total number of GRAMMY® Award Nominations to nine. Chris Potter’s impressive discography includes 23 albums as a leader and he has appeared as a sideman on over 150 albums.

“A saxophonist of inquisitive temperament and superhuman technique,” raves THE NEW YORK TIMES.

“One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet,” states DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE.

“The Dreamer Is the Dream is a testament to Potter’s composing as much as to his multi-reed instrumentality. He penned each of the compositions here and they all speak to a deeper sense of mortality, portrayed through lyricism and emotive performances. Potter’s responsiveness as a leader shines through in the beautifully orchestrated work of this quartet. One of Potter’s best to date,” says ALL ABOUT JAZZ in reviewing Potter’s Double GRAMMY® Award Nominated album ‘The Dreamer is the Dream’ (2018).

Chris Potter received a GRAMMY® Award for his work on Steely Dan’s GRAMMY® Award-Winning album ‘Two Against Nature’. Potter is also a 5x-Jazz Journalist Association “Tenor Saxophonist of the Year” Award-Winner (2013, 2015, 2018, 2019, 2020) and has topped numerous Downbeat Magazine Critics Polls over the years.

“Chris Potter is one of the best saxophone players in the world and we look forward to having him perform on March 2 at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “To have such acclaimed jazz artists like Chris, Larry and Eric playing together at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club will make for a remarkable evening of jazz music. We foresee a truly unforgettable experience for our jazz audience.”
