Color Of Jazz - Kobie Watkins Plays Art Blakey
Mallard Creek Recreation Center
Presented by Dapper Street Productions
Come out and enjoy Kobie Watkins as he pays tribute to legendary jazz drummer, Art Blakey.
KOBIE WATKINS: A native of Chicago, Illinois, Kobie began as a small child listening and watching his father (Alious C. Watkins) playing drums in the church. Kobie started with pots and pans as a toddler. Yet over time he has developed a personal system of timely discipline and structure for music and life skill. He has progressed into who he is today-- professional drummer/percussionist and music educator.
ART BLAKEY:(1919-1990) Arthur Blakey was an American jazz drummer and bandleader. He was known as Abdullah Ibn Buhaina after he became a Muslim. Blakey made a name for himself in the 1940s in the big bands of Fletcher Henderson and Billy Eckstine. He worked with bebop musicians Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie
