Dark Key Music ***** "The latest album from the magisterial drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts features a knock-your-socks-off all-star quartet with Terrence Blanchard and Branford Marsalis as the trumpet/saxophone front-line and bassist Christian McBride acting as lynchpin. Watts is a one-man percussion ensemble, shoe-horning a loose-limbed pulse into the tightest of time-keeping. The tension created is truly propulsive, whirling through blues, contemporary swing and a beautiful ballad."

Get this record!!


'Watts' has a full palette of serious music for those with an eclectic sonic appetite, destined to be the best jazz album this year!!

About Jeff "Tain" Watts

Jeff "Tain" Watts came to fame as drummer with the early Wynton Marsalis band. He has been greatly in demand ever since, playing and recording with such musicians as Geri Allen, Ricky Ford, Robin Eubanks, Betty Carter, McCoy Tyner, Gary Thomas, and Branford Marsalis, among others. He made his debut as a leader for the Sunnyside label in 1991 and joined the Tonight Show Band when Branford Marsalis became its director. Jeff Watts is both a virtuosic and a subtle drummer who is versatile enough to fit into many settings. ~ Scott Yanow
