Bobby Watson © Andrea Canter

A saxophonist, composer, arranger and educator, Bobby Watson grew up in Kansas City, Kan. He trained formally at the University of Miami, a school with a distinguished and well-respected jazz program. After graduating, he proceeded to earn his "doctorate" – on the bandstand – as musical director of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. The group, created in 1955 by late legendary drummer who died in 1990, showcased a rotating cast of players, many who, like Watson, would go on to have substantial careers as bandleaders in their own right. The Bobby Watson Quarter (which also features with Willie Pickens on piano,  Marlene Rosenberg on bass, and Greg Artry on drums) will appear at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago on Thursday, January 29th through Sunday, February 1st.
