Buster Williams Quartet
Charles Anthony "Buster" Williams Jr. is a prodigious artist whose playing knows no limits. At age seventeen, he was playing bass for the Gene Ammons/Sonny Stiff band; the long, long list of jazz giants with whom he's performed and recorded since then includes Art Blakey, Betty Carter, Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Sonny Rollins, and Sarah Vaughan, just to name a few. In 1980, Buster Williams received. GRAMMY Award nomination for his contribution to the album Love For Sale by The Great Jazz Trio, with pianist Hank Jones and drummer Tony Williams. His arrangements and compositions have been recorded by (among others) Roy Ayers, Roy Hargrove, Larry Coryell, Freddie Hubbard, Buck Hill, the Jazz Crusaders, Mary Lou Williams, and Herbie Hancock. His deep, resilient and inventive playing has made him the bassist of choice throughout the jazz world. "After working almost continuously for 30 years as a sideman," says Buster Williams, "I decided it was time to take the plunge, step up to the front, play my music, and express my concept of a cohesive musical unit. I've served my apprenticeship under many great masters and feel that it's my honor and privilege to carry on the lineage that makes this music such an artistically rich art form." Make your reservations nowfor the rare privilege of seeing this master musician at the helm of an all–star quartet!
