A glance at the material Watts has selected will indicate his musical loyalties. Pieces associated with Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Billie Holiday. "Growing up listening to these tunes is a part of my fiber. It became my subconscious imprint. My conception of these songs is what John Coltrane played on Lush Life or the way Miles played On Green Dolphin Street. I didn't hear the words until much later." Joining Ernie on this session recorded in New York was an all star group of players - pianist Mulgrew Miller, bassist George Mraz and drummer Jimmy Cobb. Tracks include: In A Sentimental Mood, It Never Entered My Mind, The Poet.
