Ernie Watts!

Analog Man

As of about a week ago, I don’t remember hearing of saxophonist Ernie Watts. But somewhere I read something about him, not sure where now, and have started digging into his music. He had a pretty commercial career to start, playing with big groups like the Rolling Stones, but in later years he’s pursued straight-ahead acoustic jazz, and I recommend it!

You can hear some of his new CD at erniewatts.com, and here’s a review. I’m also enjoying his playing on Charlie Haden’s Quartet West recording, Haunted Heart.
