It’s a lazy Saturday morning, the family is still asleep, the coffee hot and the blue is peeking through some breaks in the clouds. Seems like a good time to check out a recent acquisition, the album Musician by sax player Ernie Watts:
This 1985 release on Quincy Jones’ Qwest label definitely has that QJ flavor to it; arrangement, Phill Perry vocals and all.
Watts was a member of the Tonight Show Band under Doc Severinsen for many years and also netted credits on some of Marvin Gaye’s albums.
Was Musician one of those albums that will really blow your socks off? Well, not for me it wasn’t, but it filled the bill this morning.
