Chris Potter
The Sirens

Chris Potter - The Sirens

The Sirens is saxophonist Chris Potter's ECM debut as a leader, an album of mood and melody inspired by Homer's The Odyssey - both its epic atmosphere and its timeless humanity. Potter - who has featured on several ECM albums by his mentor Dave Holland, as well as collaborated with Paul Motian and Jason Moran on the contemporary classic Lost in a Dream - has composed a cycle of irresistible songs without words.

These pieces are conveyed by a subtly virtuosic, strikingly textured band: with Potter on tenor and soprano saxophones and bass clarinet, plus Craig Taborn (piano), David Virelles (prepared piano, celeste, harmonium), Larry Grenadier (double-bass) and Eric Harland (drums).
