Chris Potter

“Following a Michael Brecker solo is like nothing else that I have ever experienced, and very few musicians on any instrument can do it. It’s because he’s deep! By the time he gets done with an audience, people are standing on their chairs screaming. He gets to people under their skin, and that’s what makes him heavy.” – Pat Metheny (DownBeat Magazine) 2019 will mark what would have been Michael Brecker’s 70th birthday. The late saxophonist is among the most inspiring and often imitated saxophonists in the last three decades of jazz, and one who often investigated and revitalized the music’s legacy in a fresh manner that propelled it into a constant state of expansion. Wide Angles, conceived in 2002 in support of a U.K. Arts Council tour, served as…
