Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts returns to his love of jazz for a live album of big band classics, originals and Rolling Stones covers. Charlie Watts Meets The Danish Radio Big Band has been released on Impulse! / Verve. Before the Rolling Stones were a known entity in the early 1960s, Charlie Watts had a day job that took him to Denmark. While he was there, he entrenched himself in the jazz and blues scene, sitting in with bands big and small, keeping his passion for music alive while he earned his living. Fast-forward fifty years to 2010: Charlie Watts got together with the Danish Radio Big Band and rehearsed for four days, presenting a concert at the newly opened Concert Hall of Denmark in Copenhagen that was broadcast on Danish National Radio.
