Default Re: Speaking of Tony Williams....

Man, oh, man, the things you can stumble upon!

Guys, get a load of this.

A trio date with Tommy Flanagan, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. But it's Tony playing in a much more traditional, bebop style. This was cut in 1983, but Tony's playing is radically different. It is still unmistakably Tony, and his sound is still very identifiable, but man, it's quite a departure hearing Tony play these old standards so close to the tradition of the drummers who originally played them.

I found the one track on YouTube, but the whole album is terrific so far!
