Buster Williams Quartet at Smoke in NYC

Caught the Buster Williams Quartet at Smoke in NYC tonight. Killer set. Smokin' band.

 

My first time seeing Buster live. Wow, he lays it down. What tone! What feel!

 

Lenny White rules the drums. Great solo on "Epistrophy."

 

Steven Wilson was on alto and soprano sax. My first time hearing him. Really loved his style.

 

Pianist (name escapes me) was also solid. Didn't quite impress me like the others, but brought a solid game to the stage.

 

Overall, great performance. Those of you in NYC, I encourage you to try to catch a set tomorrow night before they head off to a tour in Europe.

 

Peace.

Messiaen knew how to parlay the funk.

This group may be on its way to London at the end of this month, Phil W. Check Buster's website.

 

Yeah, tnb, I got to hang w/ Lenny White for a quick minute after the set. Really nice guy. Also, Buster Williams is humble, gracious, and humorous. This is a great group, and he leads it well.

 

Really, NYers, I encourage you to plop down the $25 cover, have a drink and some food, and just enjoy the music at Smoke tonight. No joke. Good stuff.

 

Peace.
