One of the greatest jazz drummers of all times, Tony Williams is mostly remembered for his work in Miles Davis' historical quintet, with Wayne Shorter on saxophones, Herbie Hancock on piano and Ron Carter on bass.
Born in Chicago in 1945, he began his collaboration with Miles Davis at 17, influencing Davis' musical choices with his mighty and innovative jazz drums style. After leaving Davis' band, Tony Williams formed his own quintet, named V.S.O.P., with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet.
