CHRIS POTTER / CRAIG TABORN Duo

July 2020

This summer, two of the most acclaimed and influential artists on the modern jazz landscape will join forces for what is sure to be a series of breathtaking performances. Saxophone great Chris Potter and keyboard master Craig Taborn embark on their first-ever duo tour this July across Europe, taking their longstanding collaboration into a new setting that is more intimate in scale while promising to be as expansive as ever in scope.

Potter and Taborn are both acclaimed among the leading voices of their generation. Along with the inexhaustible invention that each brings to their respective instrumental vocabulary, both have also undertaken rich explorations into the realm of electronics, which offers a myriad of sonic pathways for them to explore in a duo environment.

It was their shared interest in the electric that the two cemented their partnership, in fact. While they had crossed paths in a variety of contexts, the two launched their most extensive collaboration when Potter invited Taborn to play keyboards in his explosive electric quartet Underground. After three critically acclaimed albums with that band, they traveled back into the acoustic world for Potter’s ECM label debut The Sirens and the ambitious large ensemble recording Imaginary Cities, with the Underground Orchestra.

This summer’s duo tour scales down to a keenly-focused but boundless and adventurous dialogue. The rare opportunity to witness two such stellar artists engage one another in a direct musical conversation is a thrilling prospect and one not to be missed.
