Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Concentric Circles is an album by jazz saxophonist Chris Potter that was released by Concord in 1994.

“Only 23 at the time of this Concord CD, Chris Potter shows a great deal of originality in his explorative styles on alto and soprano, while on tenor he alternates between sounding like John Coltrane (his “Dusk” is not all that different than “Naima”) and Dewey Redman. All but two songs on this set are his originals and on some pieces Potter utilizes some overdubbing. Essentially a quintet session, this CD also contains some fine chance-taking solos from pianist Kenny Werner and guitarist John Hart, with the music ranging from modal to free bop.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
