Synopsis

Product Description
* A milestone in contemporary acoustic jazz! * Named Album of the Year (1989) by French publication Jazzman. * Although Buster Williams has recorded with a glittering cast of musical associates over the past 50 years, he has made just a handful of albums under his own name. This one is especially noteworthy since, in addition to showcasing Williams' superlative bass playing and compositional prowess, it has the substantial bonus of having Herbie Hancock on piano and Wayne Shorter on tenor and soprano saxophones! * Has played, recorded, and collaborated with jazz giants such as Art Blakey, Betty Carter, Carmen McRae, Chet Baker, Chick Corea, Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Heath, and many more. * Has recorded many film soundtracks including David Lynch's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Spike Lee's Clockers. * Has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where he performed five of his original compositions with the Branford Marsalis Tonight Show Band, as well as on Sesame Street, The Today Show, and more. "A big deep sound with resilient beat, precise intonation, and inventive lines." -- Leonard Feather "A superbly recorded CD with music to match the recording quality--music that yields additional felicities with each listening." -- Jazz Journal International "Williams [is] always a highly articulate soloist with a not quite twangy but certainly tangy, resonant sound ... Quiet as it's kept, Williams' talent also runs to writing. His `Christina' is a thoughtful ballad he has recorded several times. This version, with the sensitive Reed at its center, was contemplative and calming, capable of sucking anxiety out of the air, if it had existed." -- JazzTimes (Live Performance Review)
