Default Tony Williams

Tony in my opinion is by far the best jazz drummer who ever lived....
although many people may say that "yes he was good but he wasnt the best there was".....i can see what your saying but for me he was the best

people like evlin jones and art bakely would be seen as masters...but "especially in elvins case" i just couldnt get a grip on hios seeamingly random playing....
it was so skillful and it was in time but he did so many mini solo's and fills that it was impossible to keep up!

tony's music just seemed to make sense......i really can't find the words to describe it....he was almost able to explain what he was doing while playing the actual piece....he was brilliant at what he did..
does anyone else have any comments on him??

R.I.P Tony
