Album Review

Watts Ensemble – “Crime & Time” – [kill shaman]

Cousin Mary   6/27/2009   CD, Jazz

Brian Watson (Watts), despite being a drummer in punk bands with little musical education, challenged himself to compose for and assemble a 17-piece jazz orchestra. This resulting album is a modern jazz big band, sometimes sounding like incidental music for film. Very listenable yet very original, tracks stand on their own or could be played as whole suites.
