Attucks Jazz Club : BOBBY WATSON, SAXOPHONE
November 3 @ 12:00 am - 2:00 am
Saxophonist, composer, arranger and educator Bobby Watson, raised in jazz-rich Kansas City, made a name for himself as the musical director of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, launching a career that kept his phone ringing for decades and his bags packed for gigs across the map. He has played with the legends, including Max Roach, Louis Hayes, Wynton Marsalis, Joe Williams, Dianne Reeves, Lou Rawls, Betty Carter and many more. Watson’s classic 1986 release “Love Remains (Red)” has long been recognized by the Penguin Guide to Jazz as part of the “core collection” any jazz aficionado should own. His original compositions include music for the soundtrack of Robert DeNiro’s film A Bronx Tale, and a number of classics that have been interpreted by many of his fellow musicians, including “Time Will Tell,” “In Case You Missed It,” and “Wheel Within a Wheel.” http://www.norfolk.gov/calendar.aspx?EID=11327
