Buster Williams "Something More" Quartet featuring Stefon Harris
Lenny White and George Colligan
Grammy Award winner Buster Williams is a prodigious artist whose playing knows no limits. He has played, recorded and collaborated with jazz giants such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Art Blakey, Betty Carter, Branford and Wynton Marsalis and many others. Williams tours frequently with his own group, "Something More" and Scullers is pleased to present this edition of his band.
"When it came time for Williams' solo, the man reminded listeners why he holds an esteemed position among the world's most accomplished jazz bassists. The infallibility of his pitch, the sureness of his time, the alacrity of his technique and the high melodicism of even his staccato passages must be the envy of bass players everywhere.” Howard Reich - The Chicago Tribune
Stefon Harris just won the JazzTimes Critic's Poll for #1 vibraphonist! Harris first joined Buster's band in the mid-90s through a recommendation from trombonist Steve Turre. Harris tours the world with his own band, Blackout, with the SF Jazz Collective and over the years, as a valued sideman with Kenny Barron, Steve Turre and David Sanborn, among others.
The word versatile could be used to describe drummer Lenny White, starting with his tenure in one of the ground-breaking fusion bands, Chick Corea's Return to Forever. Along with Jack DeJohnette and Don Alias, White performed with Miles Davis on the Grrammy Award-winning album Bitches Brew.
