Now's the Time: Kobie Watkins
With all due respect to Bobby Broom, drummer Kobie Watkins completely dominates the guitarist's trio in the embedded video. Watkins doesn't feature quite so prominently in shaky fan footage of a recent Sonny Rollins concert, but no one is about to upstage the great saxophonist. Joe Klopus recently raved about Watkins. The drummer leads a band at the Blue Room on Saturday, April 17.
