“One of the all-time great bassists in modern jazz.” – NPR
Buster Williams, a bassist with virtuosic technique and an unmistakable sound, leads his acclaimed quintet "Something More" with vibraphonist Stefon Harris, saxophonist Bruce Williams, pianist George Colligan, and, fellow legend, the great drummer Lenny White. The Guardian calls Williams “one of the great acoustic bassists,” and JazzTimes states “Williams’ résumé ranks with that of any bassist in the modern era.” It is a resume that includes working with Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt when he was 17; backing singing legends Betty Carter, Sarah Vaughan, and Nancy Wilson in the ’60s; anchoring Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi sextet into the ’70s; and co-founding the Timeless All-Stars and Sphere after that. As important as he is as a bassist, he is also well known as a composer and bandleader. The New Yorker hails his music as “modern, mainstream at its best.” Here, he previews the repertoire that will be released early next year.
