Here’s another great workshop with Chris Potter that I came across just now on Facebook. Chris Potter is one of the top tenor saxophone players in the world. There is a great duo performance in the beginning of “Out of Nowhere” . Chris then answers questions from the students and faculty afterwards. Great stuff. Check it out!

Thank you for posting this video.
Perhaps this video could promote a new series of inspirational videos here , helping the student ,focus on the bare essentials of how to to make nice sounding music at every level of their development and be able to figure out what the greats were doing ( choice notes, why sound good) without being distracted by initially having to necessarily play fast, memorize everything, or play everything in all 12 keys, as the latter do not necessarily guarantee you will sound good .

Enjoying your Approach Notes stuff. Do you know what the name of the blues Chris Potter plays at the end of the Abersold workshop is?
Sorry just saw this after I got your email Roger. The tune is Relaxin’ at Camarillo by Charlie Parker.
