Chris Potter came on the scene in the early 1990s and proceeded to collaborate with a "Who's Who" of modern jazz including Paul Motian, Patricia Barber, Renee Rosnes, Billy Hart, Dave Douglas, Dave Holland, Kenny Wheeler, and Pat Metheny. While his work as a leader is highly celebrated earning him standing among the best saxophone players and band leaders of his generation, his continuing contributions to the projects of long-standing partners like Holland, Motian and Rosnes add an almost unparalleled richness to his discography. Recent work illustrating the diversity of Chris Potter's musical efforts in this hour of Jazz at 100 Today!
