As a special holiday surprise, The Jazz Gallery is proud to present a power trio composed of three of jazz’s foremost leaders on their instruments—drummer Johnathan Blake, bassist Linda Oh, and saxophonist Chris Potter. All three players swing through a variety of projects as both leaders and supporting band members, meaning that their convergence at the Gallery is a rare astronomical event.
Though Blake, Oh, and Potter have not played together in this exact configuration before, their common connections run deep. Not only have Oh and Potter been two of Pat Metheny’s most recent collaborators, but Blake has been a frequent member of Potter’s own sax-bass-drums trio. Check out their effortless swing on “Synchronicity” in the video below.
Don’t miss these three special players stretch out for two sets of hard-driving modern jazz.
