Ernie Watts Quartet
All about Jazz writes of Ernie Watts: "He is one of the greatest tenor saxophonists, at the top of his game." Two-time Grammy Award winner Watts is one of the most versatile and prolific saxophone players working today. A 50-year veteran of the saxophone, Watts picked up the instrument at age 16. Since then, he has been playing professionally, initially while still attending school. Watts has been featured on over 500 recordings by artists ranging from Cannonball Adderley to Frank Zappa, always exhibiting his unforgettable trademark sound.
