Someone asked, that was me playing drums... :) Seems like another lifetime ago...

Loved Joe. He gave me the best drum lesson I've ever had the afternoon of the taping of that concert...

There isn't one of these so called singers today who could even tie Joe Williams' shoes.

Joe Williams remains one of the best jazz vocalists, and to put him out in front of what is arguably the best jazz orchestra is simply beautiful. I adore the Basie-Williams collaborations.

Joe Williams could have sung the phone book, starting with the A's, and I'd have listened to every page. That's the kind of soul the singer doesn't even think about.

Beautiful.

Listening to Joe Williams in his younger days was a pleasure but he seemed to get better with age. He was truly remarkable.

I like this world, that had Bill Basie and Joe Williams alive in it, making this music.
