The incomparable resume of Grammy-winning bassist Buster Williams ranks among the best ever in jazz: accompanying 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 Sphere and much more.
His trademark big, earthy sound leads this all-star Something More Quartet, with Lenny White on drums, Brandon McCune on piano & Bruce Williams on saxophones.
Sunday, Jan 29 @ 4 & 6 PM
