Jazz w/ Living Legend Buster Williams, bassist
July 29th @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Imagine hanging out with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, hearing them jam together, trading riffs, then riffing with words and trading stories. Bird and Diz are gone, but giants still walk among us. One of those giants is Buster Williams. Buster has played with everyone. Just to name a few: Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis, Nancy Wilson, Art Blakey, Chet Baker, Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, Benny Golson and Count Basie. Buster Williams: Bass to Infinity is a 2019 documentary film that tells the tale of Mr. Williams’ historical career and shows why he is still going strong at age 81.
“…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.” – Buster Williams
