    Watson, Ken

    Guitarist, keyboardist and percussionist who released an album titled Assembly in 1985 that is considered a must-have among fusion and progressive rock fans to this day.  In spite of the popularity of this album, Watson has enjoyed the bulk of his success as an educator and session musician.  He has recorded with an eclectic variety of artists and groups including Marty Balin, Harry James, Peggy Lee, The Mystic Moods Orchestra, James Taylor, and Frank Zappa.  A staple on the Hollywood studio circuit, his film credits include Aladdin, The Black Stallion, Che!, Dirty Harry, Enter the Dragon, Newsies, Pocahontas, and Stripes.  He attended and has taught at the University of Southern California, although it is a music scholarship at California Polytechnic State University that bears his name.
