Chris Potter Quotes
"There's a whole world of influences that are more available to us now than ever before. You can walk into a record store and get a CD from a tiny village in Africa and it's amazing. There is so much music out there that you can check out and I want more and more to find out how to combine these influences into my music."

Once it was all set and I knew who the band would be, we rehearsed for a couple of days and then recorded for two days.

I was thinking of trying to write for these guys also, just what they could bring to the date.
