Enjoy the swinging sounds of one of the top groups of the time
BRATTLEBORO- The Vermont Jazz Center welcomes Bobby Watson and Horizon on Saturday, February 15, at 8 pm. Watson, on saxophone, will be joined by Rising Stars Jazz Award winner Giveton Gelin on trumpet and a rhythm section of members of the original group: pianist Edward Simon, bassist Carroll V. Dashiell, and legendary drummer Victor Lewis.
Horizon is a supergroup that performs straight-ahead, acoustic, hardbop music. According to band leader Watson, his composing style and the group’s sound is influenced by Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Sly and the Family Stone. Horizon does not play covers, they definitely play jazz.
Come to the Jazz Center and enjoy the swinging sounds of one of the top groups of the time. The Jazz Center is grateful to a dear, anonymous supporter of the VJC Educational Programs, a person who for several years has been involved “on the ground,” doing community outreach and benefiting the Jazz Center and the surrounding community at every opportunity.
