Chris Potter is one of my favorite jazz artists. His upbeat style with a modern flare always makes for some good background music. I’m in no way a jazz aficionado so I don’t know the particular differences between him and someone like Miles Davis but much of the jazz out there doesn’t work for me when I am trying to study or focus on a work project.
I’ve put together a playlist of several albums of Chris Potter. All (I think) of the tracks do not have words so its ideal for background music while studying.
You can listen to the playlist here on Apple Music and add it to your library.
Additionally, if you add the playlist to your Apple Music library you can run this Siri Shortcut:
- Sets your device to Do Not Disturb (it will ask you how long)
- Shuffles the Chris Potter Jazz playlist
- Sets the volume to 75%
When you add the Siri Shortcut you can modify it to better fit how you work.
