The final COUNTDOWN Festival ensemble is a winner with alto saxophonist Bobby Watson and pianist George Cables as featured guests. All About Jazz describes Watson as playing “very intensely, echoing those powerful Kansas City sounds while moving forward through all the bebop and mainstream trends while maintaining his own consistent style,” and the Financial Times states, “He lets notes linger seductively before darting off at warm and romantic angles, and his high-note riffs and speedy lines are steeped in the blues and serve an over-arching purpose.” All About Jazz declares, “Anyone who is serious about jazz will tell you that George Cables belongs in the pantheon of the greatest jazz pianists.” Reviewing his most recent recording, The New York City Jazz Records states, “Even if one had not heard his playing before, a few minutes spent with I’m All Smiles lets one know that he is a piano giant.” Watson and Alexander are particularly looking forward to exploring Coltrane’s music together with the great George Cables.
