Chris Potter: All The Things You Are

It so happened that my plans for the autumn were changed, and due to that I went and enrolled into Berkeley Jazz School, where Mark Levine is doing a 10-week class for Jazz Theory. Boy, did I bite a big piece to chew there! I’ll inform you later -if my brain haven’t melted- how it all went, but in the meanwhile here’s a clip from a sax player my teacher Tony recommended. Chris Potter improvises on top of one of my favorite tunes, All The things You Are… to really appreciate what he does with the tune it sure helps if you know the song, so for those who are not familiar with the song here’s a link to Ella’s beautiful take of it:

And then Chris’s take on the tune:

Me go back to practice now. See you again when I’ve learned to play that damn horn! 😉
