    "My feeling is that music should have a purpose. In the past, it always has been used for healing and uplifting and meditation. And that's the way I see my music. I've had people come up after a program to tell me that they felt a spiritual healing from the music”.

    Concert Date: December 12, 2015

    Venue: The New Hazlett Theater

    Jeff “Tain” Watts

    Jeff Watts, the drummer they call "Tain," spent his formative years with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, and his compositional skills now command equal attention.

    Jeff initially majored in classical percussion at Pittsburgh's Duquesne University, where he was primarily a timpanist, followed by enrollment at the Berklee School of Music.

    Jeff joined the Wynton Marsalis Quartet in 1981 and proceeded to win three Grammy Awards.
