Bobby Watson All-Stars

Great artists - whatever their medium, whatever their methods - have one thing in common. They can connect with an audience in visceral, vital ways that transcend our usual modes of communication. Alto sax star Bobby Watson possesses that magical connecting ability.

His artistic focus enables him to captivate an audience with inventive, alluring improvisations Bobby is best known for his four years with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, but his distinguished career also includes work with Max Roach, Wynton Marsalis, Betty Carter, and Carlos Santana. He is one of the most popular artists ever to perform in Cork in recent years.

His all-star band features Bruce Barth who is widely considered to be one of finest jazz pianists and composers of his generation. New York City's Village Voice calls him "one of the best pianists in town, period."LINE UP: Bobby Watson (alto sax), Bruce Barth (piano), Duncan Hopkins (double bass) and Stephen Keogh (drums)
