The great alto saxophonist Bobby Watson first gained fame with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers during a prolific period in the late ‘70s when he also served as the group’s music director. Along the way he has been a vital artistic voice working with Max Roach, Louis Hayes, George Coleman, Sam Rivers, Branford and Wynton Marsalis as well as vocalists like Joe Williams, Dianne Reeves, Lou Rawls, Better Carter, and Carmen Lundy. He also formed his own influential band, Horizon, which is considered one of the essential small groups of the past 30 years. All About Jazz describes Watson as playing “very intensely, echoing those powerful Kansas City sounds while moving forward through all the bebop and mainstream trends while maintaining his own consistent style,” and the Financial Times states, “He lets notes linger seductively before darting off at warm and romantic angles, and his high-note riffs and speedy lines are steeped in the blues and serve an over-arching purpose.”
