The Potter Ensemble


The Potter Ensemble is a group that straddles two worlds – Jazz and Classical – combining a Jazz Quartet with String Quartet. Arranger/ Composer/ Bassist Paul Baxter, from Wonder Inn residents The Manchester Jazz Collective, has brought together these two elements to explore the work of some of his favourite composers and perform them in a new sound world.
Expect to hear the music of such great composers as EST, Vince Mendoza, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington.

The Potter Ensemble are:

Paul Baxter – Double Bass & Arranger
Kyran Matthews – Saxophones
Rich Jones – Piano
Steve Hanley – Drums
Gemma Bass – Violin
Graham Clark – Violin
TBC – Viola
Abel Selaocoe – Cello
