Saturday March 9, 2013 in the Terry Theater at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts; Chris Potter in Concert with The Mica Bethea Big Band, preceded by a Master Class for the public the day before with Potter.
Chris is a “...world-class soloist, accomplished composer and formidable bandleader, saxophonist. He has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Down Beat called him "One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet" while Jazz Times identified him as "a figure of international renown." Jazz sax elder statesman Dave Liebman called him simply, "one of the best musicians around," a sentiment shared by the readers of Down Beat in voting him second only to tenor sax great Sonny Rollins in the magazine's 2008 Readers Poll.”
Master Class will be the day before, Friday, March 8, 2013 at 3:00 pm at the Terry Concert Hall at Jacksonville University.
