Ernie Watts

3 posts in this topic

Went to see Ernie Watts Saturday night at the 222 in Healdsburg, CA.  This will be a short one because I can't find enough words to describe what I saw/heard. At 76 years of age, sounds like he's 36. Absolutely phenomenal. At times, I thought I was hearing the reincarnation of Trane. Nice comments between songs about Cannonball, Ornette, Haden, Pettiford, Monk. Problem is, why did I have to drive 80 miles to see him.  What happened to San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose where the bulk of the people are?  Other than a 39 min delay at Richmond/San Rafael Bridge and torrential downpour, it was well worth the drive. Supporting trio was also great, Marc Seals on piano. I forget the names of the drummer and bassist, both very good.......
