Sadao Watanabe Sextet

Sadao Watanabe has long had a split musical personality. He alternates excellent bebop dates with pop albums. Watanabe learned clarinet and alto in high school, and in the 1950s he moved to Tokyo, joining Toshiko Akiyoshi's bop-oriented group in 1953. When the pianist moved to the U.S. in 1956, Watanabe took over the band. He attended Berklee during 1962-1965 and had the opportunity to work with Gary McFarland, Chico Hamilton, and Gabor Szabo. However, throughout his career Watanabe has remained mostly based in Japan, where he is a major influence on younger players. He has recorded steadily through the years, most notably with Chick Corea in New York (1970) and with the Galaxy All-Stars (1978). Watanabe's bop records are inspired by Charlie Parker, and his pop dates by Brazilian-flavored music. ~ Scott Yanow and Thom Jurek, Rovi

i appreciate the lengthy and complete artist's bios. It would be an improvement to this site to include liner notes, so information such as who played on each cut, and the composer's name would be available to peruse.

i used to see Watanabe in clubs in Tokyo when i was a student there in 1976. He was a hoot. The club had percussion instruments in the back row and, towards the end of his shows Watanabe would play fun bossa/Carrib e a n music and the audience would participate with cow bells, wood blocks, etc. Very unlike jazz in the States at the time.
