Bill Watrous in concert
Legendary jazz trombonist Bill Watrous joins the Sam Houston State University Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Aric Schneller at House of Blues Houston. The group is performing prior to a concert at the 2016 Texas Music Educators Association Convention.
Bill Watrous is perhaps best known for his rendition of Sammy Nestico's arrangement of the Johnny Mandel ballad "A Time for Love," which he recorded on a 1993 album of the same name. A self-described bop-oriented player, he is well known among fellow trombonists as a master technician and for his mellifluous sound.
