Thursday, May 16, 7:00 PM Performance Penthouse, Logan Center for the Arts 915 E 60th St
UChicago Presents’ Jazz at the Logan series, in partnership with the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, hosts a listening session with jazz saxophonist Chris Potter. The restlessly innovative saxophonist shares some of his favorite recordings and discusses his own music in a casual setting, moderated by Chicago composer, multi-reedist, and educator Geof Bradfield.
A world-class soloist, accomplished composer, and formidable bandleader, Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Constantly pushing the envelope, Potter turned heads in 2015 when he expanded his bass-less Underground Quartet to an 11-piece orchestra with strings. Potter discusses his musical influences and style in a listening session on May 16, and the following night, he comes to the Logan Center Performance Hall for the third-ever performance of his Imaginary Cities suite with the full Underground Orchestra.
