Bob Watt was the first African-American French horn player in a major US orchestra, hired by Zubin Mehta in 1970. After 37 years with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and several soundtrack contributions, this is his formal solo debut, as produced by Todd Cochran (known for his work with Herbie Hancock, Peter Gabriel, and Joan Armatrading, among others.) The album touches on Ravel, J.S. Bach, Brubeck, and various spirituals. It also has an original tribute piece to Watt's late friend, Miles Davis.
