Bobby Watson goes electric
Jazz Analyst | Los Angeles, CA USA | 04/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In this album Bobby Watson fronts a band that sports synthesizers and electric guitar. However, his long-time associate from Horizon, Victor Lewis is on board. It is different for Bobby, but still successful overall. Above all, the album has good compositions. Bobby also plays tenor on a couple of cuts which is different. The best songs are Lou B, Beatitudes, and Agaya. The keyboards are played very nicely by Rachel Z. There are a couple of vocals that are not successful. This music would not get airplay on the 'Smooth Jazz' stations even though it has the right instrumentation. This album still has a little grit to it. Quite nice."
