Bobby Watson Quartet (LIVE & Online)

BOBBY WATSON sits among the pantheon of present-day jazz greats. Born in Kansas City, Kan., his career now spans more than four decades. A GRAMMY®-nominated saxophonist, composer, bandleader, educator and producer, Watson trained formally at the University of Miami and then, from 1977-1981, earned his “doctorate” as musical director of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. During his four-plus years with the legendary drummer, the saxophonist contributed to 14 Jazz Messengers recordings, which turns out is more than anyone else in the group’s 35-year storied history.

In addition to Blakey, early on the saxophonist also worked with notable jazz icons and elder statesmen such as Max Roach, Louis Hayes, George Coleman and Sam Rivers, as well as sharing music experiences with peers and colleagues alike including, but certainly not limited to: Branford Marsalis and Wynton Marsalis as well as significant vocalists such as Joe Williams, Dianne Reeves, Lou Rawls, Betty Carter and Carmen Lundy.
