Charlie Watts

Born:

Over the past two decades The Rolling Stones drummer, Charlie Watts, has been able to pursue his passion for jazz, playing in a variety of settings whenever he wasn't otherwise engaged with the "World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band." In 1985, he formed a big band and toured the States, ultimately releasing Live at Fulham Town Hall on the Sony label. In 1991, he formed a small group to pay homage to the music that first grabbed him while growing up in London. In a span of five years, The Charlie Watts Quintet released a series of stellar recordings — From One Charlie, Tribute To Charlie Parker, Warm And Tender and Long Ago And Far Away. Next came Charlie's heartfelt collaboration with Jim Keltner, The Charlie Watts / Jim Keltner Project, in tribute to their favorite drummers with each track titled after a different hero

Rolling Stones Licked Live In NYC Mercury Studios 2022 It is no little poetic justice, but also a perfectly appropriate gesture of respect on its own terms that, when the Rolling Stones first appear on the Madison Square Garden stage in Licked Live In NYC, vocalist Mick Jagger is ...

The Rolling Stones: El Mocambo 1977

Read "El Mocambo 1977" reviewed by Doug Collette


The die-cut design of the double-CD cover for the Rolling Stones' El Mocambo 1977 mitigates at least to some degree the borderline amateurish cover art. But reversing the pink and blue covers of the twenty-page booklet inside the dual-fold package achieves a greater end than simply altering the simplistic cosmetics; its extraction also reveals a Paul ...

Meet Jack Sirica

Read "Meet Jack Sirica" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper


Self-raised on rock and roll, Jack Sirica's connection to music always comes back to rhythm. Sure, there was that teenage flirtation with a Fender Mustang electric guitar (which ended when his dad, worried about slipping grades, intervened), but Sirica credits Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts' swing feel on the ride cymbal for opening up his ears ...

Read "Michael Jackson & Jimmy Smith to Stevie Wonder & Dizzy Gillespie — My Top Ten Jazz/Pop Encounters" reviewed by Alan Bryson


It's a good bet that most of us have heard people say they don't like jazz, or even worse, drop the H-bomb, “I hate jazz." If you choose to engage, the key is to tread lightly and tailor an approach that considers the tastes and sensibilities of the other person. The “So You Don't Like Jazz" ...

The Costello Jazz Show, Part 1

Read "The Costello Jazz Show, Part 1" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Jazz is one of the most recurrent motifs in the multi-layered quilt that Elvis Costello's discography is; and one of those which make that eclectic patchwork both cohesive and uniquely appealing. The son of a jazz trumpeter/singer with a passion for 40s American jazz and a record seller with ears wide open, it's perhaps ...

Charlie Watts (1941-2021)

In most photos of the Rolling Stones, Charlie Watts always looked like the band's accountant. Unlike Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones and Bill Wyman, he didn't seem to fit in nor did it appear in photos that he wanted to. And in many ways he didn't. Watts, at the tail end of the 1950s, was ...
