Chris Potter: Eagle's Point

Read "Eagle's Point" reviewed by Chris May

The question that comes to mind after listening to Eagle's Point is this: why have the four musicians, who have known each other since the 1990s, never recorded together before? For the combination of Chris Potter, Brad Mehldau, John Patitucci and Brian Blade is a real meeting of minds; the stars are in perfect alignment. Potter's previous release, Got The Keys To The Kingdom (Edition, 2023), was a live set, recorded at New York's Village Vanguard, and ...

Chris Potter Underground: The Wheel

Read "Chris Potter Underground: The Wheel" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

Saxophonist Chris Potter has struck gold with many of his lineups but his Underground was indeed a special one, as this 2009 clip shows.
