Chris Potter is a supremely influential saxophonist. Downbeat Magazine has called him "one of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet." In this introspective and philosophical podcast conversation he talks about art, the search for something new, what motivates him today, what he sees as his role, responsibility and contribution to the history of jazz.

Along the way he reflects on his experience working with Red Rodney, Dave Holland, Eric Harland, and Steely Dan and the influence of Duke Ellington, Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond and Charlie Parker on his early development.
