Buster Williams & Something More Quartet

Saturday, October 19 at 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm


Legendary bassist Buster Williams leads his Something More quartet that includes Steve Wilson on Saxophones, George Colligan at the piano, and Drummer Lenny White. The Guardian calls Williams one of the great acoustic bassists, and JazzTimes states Williams resumé ranks with that of any bassist in the modern era. It s a resumé that includes working with Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt when he was 17; backing singing legends Betty Carter, Sarah Vaughn and Nancy Wilson in the 60s; anchoring Herbie Hancocks’ Mwandishi Sextet into the 70s; and co-founding the Timeless All-Stars and Sphere after that. As important as he is as a bassist with his virtuosic technique and an unmistakable sound, he is equally known for his compositions and bands, which The New Yorker hails as modern, mainstream Jazz at its best.

“Buster decided it was time to take the plunge, step up to the front, play his music, and express his concept of a cohesive musical unit. Since the inception of his own band, Something More has toured the globe many times.” • All About Jazz

“Bassist Buster Williams is one of the key players in modern jazz with a rock-solid grounding in harmony, counterpoint and orchestration. Buster’s musicianship is impeccable and his rhythmic sense unfailing. Williams work as a leader is a blueprint for bassists on how to assume a more proactive, forward position in an ensemble without throwing it out of balance.” • The New Yorker

“In Williams hands, the bass is a fully articulate solo voice. His big, deep, resilient and inventive playing has made him the bassist of choice throughout the jazz world. He has worked with just about everyone of import on the jazz scene, including long stints with Herbie Hancock and Nancy Wilson.” • JazzIs
