Ernie Watts

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I can't believe I only had 3 of his titles, Reaching Out, The Ernie Watts Quartet and Classic Moods. I was adding some Rickey Woodard to his section of the collection(close to 6000)and I saw Tenor Trio with Woodard, Watts and Christlieb. If you love Trane like I do, you have to love Ernie Watts. Now all the rest of his titles are on their way to my mailbox.  As an added bonus, he's alive at 75. and still kicking it, 21st century hard bop, love it............

If you like him that much, two words, one record - Planet Love.

Wow, I didn't know about this one (and seems it has not been reissued as CD or on streaming yet...).  Very good.

 

I love Ernie Watts' works on Charlie Haden's Quartet West.  Also a kind of novelty thing, Ernie dueled with one Bruce Eskovitz on Tenor Madness.  It's one of my favorites, very swinging and really fun.

Yeah that. ^  Especially the first record with Billy Higgins.

Really, don't overlook him with Buddy Rich. That's his jiggiest stuff, right there!
