  • This interesting live CD, which includes some rather frivolous but harmless on-stage dialogue, features Bobby Watson's group Horizon. The quintet (comprised of altoist Watson, trumpeter Terell Stafford, pianist Edward Simon, bassist Essiet Essiet and drummer Victor Lewis) was one of the finest hard bop units of the time and one of the few that played together with the same personnel on a regular basis. Highlights of their spirited set include the joyous "Blues of Hope," "Complex Dialogue," "Midwest Shuffle" and "Mable Is Able." ~ Scott Yanow
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (5/94, p.46) - 4 1/2 Stars - Very Good Plus - "...[Watson's group] Horizon is as solid as any jazz group working today; like a championship basketball team they're strong in all five positions...[Bobby] Watson has maintained [Art Blakey's] '70s style, a gleaming alloy of Messenger Horace Silver's Caribbean-gospel-blues amalgam with the molten modalism of middle-period Coltrane...."
