Glenn E. Williams

When you listen to Glenn play the piano, artists such as the pioneering George Winston and David Lanz come to mind. Glenn E. Williams plays the piano with emotion and precision that gives life to each melody and breath to the color of harmony. Glenn’s music offers up a sanctuary of sounds and styling for each ear to explore. Interestingly, Glenn began his study of piano at the age of 17. Without the assistance of a teacher or the acquisition of a piano, Glenn began to explore the piano and instruct himself. He would do chores for a widowed neighbor in exchange for practice time on her piano. After cutting the grass or cleaning out some boxes from the basement, Glenn would play the piano for hours while Mrs. Williams, (no relation) would listen relaxed in her pink Victorian chair.

Glenn has always been attracted to the Classics, Romantics and Impressionists even at the young age of twelve. He bought his first LP (record/ vinyl), Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor with Sir Clifford Curzon at the Piano.

Like most adolescence, Glenn was into rock music. The prog-rock groups Yes, Marillion and Genesis, as well as, jazz greats as Chick Corea and Pat Metheny, inspired him. In high school, Glenn played in many rock bands either as a pianist, singer or drummer. Once graduation arrived, Glenn decided to audition for music school. Without any formal training he was accepted to Mansfield University.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
