A tribute to the late & great Tony Williams
A little tribute to the late & great Tony Williams, one of my favourite musicians. This is an excerpt from a version of his track ‘Fred’, which appeared originally on the first album by The New Tony Williams Lifetime, called Believe It (1975). I re-recorded the opening section for use in my clinic styles piece.
Live clinic performance excerpt.
A little video starring my Sabian set-up from some clinics in 2012. I’ve always loved what SABIAN do, the innovation in their products & the inherent brilliance in their sound and design are only a few of the reasons I choose Sabian.
