Dapper Street Presents - Color Of Jazz

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
