WBGO, September 12, 2008 – In recent years, Chris Potter has been hatching a new identity. Already considered one of his generation’s premier improvisers, the tenor saxophonist has been devising a way to merge his cutting virtuosity into a different type of working band; one that conjures up crisp, backbeat-heavy electronic textures. On Tuesday, Sept. 16, Potter leads his quartet, called the Chris Potter Underground, back into underground Manhattan for a show at the Village Vanguard, broadcast live on air by WBGO and live online by NPR Music.
