Watts On @ Ronnie Scott's

This coming Tuesday will hopefully find me in London comfortably ensconced in Ronnie's listening to the Ernie Watts Quartet. Tenorist Watts drops by to play two dates at the club (May 7/8) as part of a schedule that slots London in between Frankfurt, Rheinfelden, Switzerland, Milan, Austria, then back to Frankfurt before heading off to Kuala Lumpar, Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong - talk about Chariots of Fire! (Watt's film soundtrack award winning Grammy album.)
Ian Patterson in All About Jazz described Ernie Watts as "One of the greatest living saxophonists. At the top of his game"
For more info on a man who, in his early twenties started out with the Buddy Rich Band - and survived -.visit his website.
The Ernie Watts Quartet appears at Ronnie Scott's on Monday and Tuesday May 7/8.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
