Weekend in NoMad: Chris Potter Underground, Nir Felder
We have some really accomplished musicians performing in the NoMad neighborhood this weekend! We’ve narrowed it down to a couple of our favorites for you guys!
Chris Potter Underground will perform all weekend at Jazz Standard. Chris Potter is a world-famous saxophonist who is generally considered to be one of the best players of his generation. Down Beat declared him “one of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet” and also named him the #2 living saxophonist in the world. Chris Potter will be joined by a three-piece band including Adam Rogers (guitar), Fima Ephron (electric bass) and Nate Smith (drums).
Nir Felder Trio will perform at Jazz Gallery on saturday night. The Katonah native was declared the “next big jazz guitarist” by NPR. In addition, the Berklee College of Music graduate won the prestigious Jimi Hendrix award while in school!
Have a great weekend and enjoy the fantastic music in the NoMad neighborhood!
