Chris Potter Masterclass 12-04-2015 Akron, Ohio

Here’s another great Chris Potter masterclass from 12-4-15 in Akron, Ohio that someone posted on Youtube.  This is just an audio of the masterclass.  Chris Potter’s opening solo on Cherokee is amazing as usual.  I can’t get enough of these solos and masterclasses!  Check it out!

  1. I find these solos technically brilliant, but to be honest: they don’t touch me emotionally. Not a bit.

  2. A different approach every chorus or two. Linear or harmonic, diatonically, pentatonically, overtones, and several others. He’s teaching while he’s playing! I haven’t listened to a lot of Chris Potter, but I plan to now. Fantastic, AND it touches me emotionally. More than just a bit.

  3. I love Chris’ playing, I do think he is a genius (like Michael Brecker)…Thanks for doing the transcription of the second chorus Steve…very helpful to be able to look at his ideas from a reading POV.
    Did you do chorus #1 ?
    and….are planning to tackle more choruses ?

    All the best,
