Default Re: Tony Williams - where to start?

I think the VSOP Quintet recordings are great. The earier stuff with Miles is awesome, but fairly abstract in terms of following the tunes AABA style... But I suppose if you are already listening to Hamid Drake, it might seem fairly straight. The VSOP recordings are just great examples of Tony's bag of "tricks". There are a couple of Miles recordings between the "Plugged Nickel" recordings and VSOP, but I can't remember them right now. Google could help me, but I'm trying to drink coffee.
