Ernie Watts

REVIEW: Ernie Watts, 'Wheel Of Time,' Flying Dolphin Records >>

It was November 1981. I was still married to my ex-wife. With no kids yet, we could rock'n'roll and the Rolling Stones were in town. When they went into "Brown Sugar," there was saxophonist Ernie Watts blowing big to recreate the iconic Bobby Keys sax solo. Man, did he wail! I've loved him ever since. There isn't any rock'n'roll on his new 'Wheel Of Time' CD (Flying Dolphin Records). It's only jazz but I like it.
