Tony Williams (American jazz drummer)

~ Person

Annotation

One of the "new cats" Miles Davis band, Tony Williams drums are heard on a number of sessions from the Blue Note 60's clan.
Hired very young by Jackie McLean, his interests eventually shifted toward rock and fusion in the 70's, before being re-called for duty for the V.S.O.P. records.
Mr Williams was only 18 when he took part in Eric Dolphy's sessions.
His death at 50 years old left a void in the jazz community.
