Booker T. Williams, Jr.

A jazz saxophonist from Seattle, Wash. and based in NYC. I, ve recorded with such greats as Denis Charles, Andrew Cyrille, Saheb Sarbib, Jean-Paul Bourelly, Craig Harris, etc. and travelled in Europe and Japan with Henry Threadgill, Denis Charles, Reggie Workman, John Stubblefield, Paul Motian, etc. at many of the major Jazz Fests like Einhoven Jazz Fest, Saalfelden Jazz Fest, North Sea Jazz Fest, Pori Jazz Fest, etc. Also was a part of the JVC/Texaco Jazz Fest. My album, “GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN” on the SILKHEART label (SHCD-114) has received much world wide acclaim.

Also recently, my graphic art chops have been rekindled. I' ve discovered some very new techniques that have revolutionized my artistic approach.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
