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.

“Lizz Wright’s voice is a national treasure.” - Upscale Magazine
LIZZ WRIGHT has been charming music fans worldwide ever since she appeared on the late pianist and composer Joe Sample’s 2002 disc, The Pecan Tree. The following year, she gained even wider recognition for her critically acclaimed debut record, Salt. Her mix of traditional blues, folk, and contemporary pop shows the influence of many genres without fitting comfortably into a single one.
