The best black drummer to ever grace the drums, hands down. No other drummer was as versatile in so many styles as he, and it is a shame that he was taken from us so early.
What does Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Jackie McLean, Kenny Dorham, Wayne Shorter, and Wynton Marsalis all have in common? They all had the PRIVILEGE of playing with Tony Williams.
Did you know that Tony Williams started playing with Miles Davis when he was only 17!!!!!!
