Jeff "Tain" Watts
The drummer they call “Tain” spent his formative years with Branford Marsalis, and recent work suggests that the rhythm hound has as much respect for the great Elvin Jones as Branford has for Jones’s old boss John Coltrane. Just as impressive, Watts’s compositional skills now command as much attention as his percussive thunder. Here, the drummer celebrates Blue, Vol. 1, a new album focused on blues and ballads.
