Saxophonist Ernie Watts releases his latest quartet project “Home Light” on November 16 via City Hall Records.  “Home Light” is filled with a variety of powerful and lyrical pieces, and also some humor, such as the Ornette-like energy of ‘Frequie Flyiers,’ a tribute to bebop, and ‘I Forgot August,’ built on the harmonic structure of the standard ‘I Remember April.’  ‘Horizon” is a meditative ballad, and the title tune, ‘Home Light,’ a nod towards gospel.
