Tailor Made

This CD was altoist Bobby Watson's first as the leader of a big band. He leads the orchestra through a dozen of his compositions, none of which they had performed together before meeting up in the studio. But due to the high caliber of the players, the music came together smoothly. In performances ranging from modern hard bop to Latin with subtle hints of freer styles

Overview

This CD was altoist Bobby Watson's first as the leader of a big band. He leads the orchestra through a dozen of his compositions, none of which they had performed together before meeting up in the studio. But due to the high caliber of the players, the music came together smoothly. In performances ranging from modern hard bop to Latin with subtle hints of freer styles of jazz, Watson is the main soloist (although there are a few short spots for trumpeter Terell Stafford), making the album a sort of "concerto for alto and orchestra." Even if the backup musicians have little opportunity to star, the music is consistently enjoyable and recommended to fans of modern mainstream jazz.
