Jazz Musicians - Festival #3



After enjoying the music on Friday afternoon, DH and I decided to return for a longer period on Saturday. Bobby Watson, the saxaphonist you see above sat in for a few sets on Friday and is an obvious local favorite among jazz aficionados so we began our jazz fest by arriving at 4 pm to hear Bobby's group. To hear some of his music and read his bio, click here. Bobby started his career with a turn in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers from 1977-1981. He has produced nearly 30 albums as a bandleader and appears on over 100 recordings (Credit: Jazz Festival program).

  6. Two of these musicians look like they are suffering for their music. The third looks like he's riding high on it.
    Nice captures.

  7. I went to club in SF in 1965 to listen to Art Blakey. Obviously well before Bobby Watson joined. He must be good to have been part of the Jazz Messengers!
