All About Jazz.com and The Pitch give Bobby Watson's "Gates BBQ Suite" some excellent shout outs. Bobby Watson continues to make international news. The Conservatory Concert Jazz Band, under Watson's direction, has been invited by the city of Kurashiki, Japan, via the Heart of America Japan-America Society to perform in Kurashiki, Japan in October 2010 during Japan's 25th National Cultural Festival in Okayama prefecture. The all-expenses paid trip will allow our students to perform for this prestigious festival, and experience and learn about Japanese culture through Kurashiki, a sister city to Kansas City, Missouri. The group will travel to Japan October 30–November 8, 2010 to perform in the festival.
