A world-class soloist, accomplished composer and formidable bandleader, saxophonist Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Down Beat magazine called him, “one of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet”, while Jazz Times magazine identified him as, “a figure of international renown.” He joins the UIC Jazz Ensemble for the finale performance of the  annual High School Jazz Festival.
