Description

Multiple Personality on CD

Loyd Watson, Jr. is to modern jazz what Miles Davis was to the hard-bop movement: a trendsetter. To be a trendsetter, one must be versatile enough to saturate himself in all areas of music and have the ability to take all that he/she has immersed themselves with and produce a sound of their own. That task is daunting in and of itself, but trendsetters make accomplishing that task look easy. Loyd's path to greatness began in West Tuscaloosa, Alabama, a place from which no one would expect such genius. He started playing the saxophone in the seventh grade beginner band. From there, he would continue to play in bands all throughout high school and ultimately, college. Fulfilling the status quo would not be enough for Loyd. He formed his own band at the age of fifteen. While it was not unique to start a band, it was unique to start a band that played almost entirely original music. This stance definitely was not popular among local music enthusiasts, but it earned him respect. By the time Loyd had enrolled at Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi, he had gained notoriety as an 'original cat,' one who had his own sound and could not be easily compared to anyone. After graduating 'Magna Cum Laude' with a degree in Music Education-Jazz Concentration, Loyd returned to his home state of Alabama to become a middle and high school Band Director for four years. Loyd then gave up teaching and took a job building SUV's for Mercedes Benz. A year later, he re-united musically with life-long friend Anthony Avery, better know as Sam Addams. Sam, a trendsetter himself, worked tirelessly with Loyd to create 'Multiple Personality,' Loyd's statement in 'groove.' Loyd currently is juggling building SUV's at his 'regular job' and touring to support his release. He also plans to return to college to pursue an Master's then Doctorate degree in Music Education-Jazz Studies. Loyd gives the credit for his talent, stamina, and perseverance to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
