I’ve been busy juggling all of the aspects of life and music just like most of you. Still seeking and appreciating new music, I have been enthusiastic about NextBop.com, which titles itself as”The Next Generation of Jazz”. It’s refreshing to hear new ideas that are still true to the form. Some music personally connect with, some I don’t, but that is music. Beside the more recognized names such as Christian Scott and Brad Mehldau, here’s bassist Ben Williams (and Band Leader) that I’ve chosen to showcase this time. Some of you may remember him as a past International Society Of Bassist award recipient.
A young players out of D.C. with a funny story of how he got into playing the bass.
