In a Sentiment Mood - The Charlie Watts Quintet

avec Bernard Fowler et un orchestre à corde
Although most of his career has been spent with the Rolling Stones, building a reputation as one of the greatest drummers of all time, Charlie Watts has always had a special place in his heart for jazz. An ardent admirer of the legendary saxophonist Charlie Parker, he wrote Ode to a High-Flying Bird thirty-five years ago, and five years ago dedicated an album to his idol. The passion eventually drove him to found various jazz quintets and orchestras — the Charlie Watts Orchestra among others — with the best British jazzmen, and for over ten years, the devoted Rolling Stone has been enjoying a parallel career. He's in Montreal with his quintet, a few strings and singer Bernard Fowler to present a premiere performance of an album to be released this summer.
In collaboration with La Presse, CKAC 730 et CITÉ 107.3 FM
