MASTER DRUMMER/MODERN JAZZ
Best known for his work with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, the Grammy-winning master drummer and composer performs from his recent works of modern jazz, joined by his all-star quartet. “Watts brings a rare sense of elegance, tried-by-fire composure, and a gritty street funk to his music.” ~All About Jazz
In the film and television industry, Jeff “Tain” Watts has appeared as both a musician on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and as an actor, Rhythm Jones in Spike Lee’s “Mo Better Blues”. His 11 albums as a leader demonstrate Tain’s explosive power, blinding speed and mastery of complex rhythms.
