DownBeat called Chris Potter “one of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet” while the Detroit Free Press hailed him as “easily the most compelling saxophonist of his generation.” The tenor man’s impressive discography includes fifteen albums as a leader and sideman appearances on over 100 albums. Chris earned a GRAMMY nomination (Best Jazz Instrumental Solo) for his performance on “In Vogue,” a track from Joanne Brackeen’s Pink Elephant Magic (1999); and was featured prominently on Steely Dan’s GRAMMY–winning album Two Against Nature (2000). To kick off this Chris Potter mini–festival, he’ll join forces with bassist Ben Street and the legendary drummer Billy Hart for two nights of expansive improvisation.

Join us for a special National Museum of the American Indian symposium marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of its predecessor institution—the Museum of the American Indian (MAI)—by George Gustav Heye (1874–1957). Distinguished scholars will delve into the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century contexts of North American museums, philanthropy, personal and scientific collecting, and perceptions of Native people. The symposium will explore how these circumstances set the stage for George Heye’s personal collecting after 1897 and his establishment of a museum dedicated to Native peoples of the Americas in New York City in 1916.
