Nearly four decades separate the exuberant Chris Potter and the sage Houston Person, but in Durham they share the same supporting trio. This double bill of saxophonists from South Carolina stretches across generations and styles. Potter, who moved to New York at the age of eighteen, has been praised by The New Yorker for “employing his considerable technique in the service of the music rather than spectacle.” Person left South Carolina as a young saxophonist in the 1940s, joined the Air Force, and was shipped out to Germany, where he joined a jazz band. A soulful giant with a round, gentle tone, he has released some seventy-five albums. None other than critic Nat Hentoff declared his recordings a desert-island necessity.
