Bassist Buster Williams, a bassist with virtuosic technique and an unmistakable sound, leads his “Something More” quartet that includes the great drummer Lenny White. The Guardian calls Williams “one of the great acoustic bassists,” and JazzTimes states “Williams’ résumé ranks with that of any bassist in the modern era.” It’s a resume 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 Hancock’s Mwandishi sextet into the ’70s; and co-founding the Timeless All-Stars and Sphere after that. As important as he is as a bassist, he is equally known for his compositions and bands, which The New Yorker hails his music as “modern, mainstream at its best.”
