The Eric Wyatt Quartet with Jeff "Tain" Watts
From the venue:
Saxophonist, recording artist and protege of Sonny Rollins Eric Wyatt brings an all-star quartet to The Velvet Note, including the legendary Jeff "Tain" Watts (drums), Delbert Felix (bass) and Kenny Banks, Jr. (piano).
Celebrating A Song of Hope, his second album for Whaling City Sound, saxophonist Eric Wyatt offers more than hope; he offers assurance that contemporary jazz is alive and well in and around his home base of Brooklyn, NY. Wyatt, the godson of another rather well-known saxophonist, Sonny Rollins, performs in groups of various sizes, from quartet to octet, with vocals by Samara Joy on two numbers, "Fragile" and Wyatt's "Say Her Name." The almost-constants are pianist Donald Vega, bassist Eric Wheeler and drummer Jeff Watts, who will perform with him at The Velvet Note.
