James Gordon Williams

Originally from the City of Angels, the Manhattan resident originally migrated eastward to continue his development as a creative musician on the East Coast scene. Now a force to be reckoned with on the international jazz scene, Mr. Williams has appeared regularly at such notable venues as “Birdland”, “Village Vanguard”, and “Lenox Lounge”. Mr. Williams has also given solo piano improvisation concerts at the Knitting Factory and performed world premieres of his original compositions at Smalls Jazz Club.

Mr. Williams has toured the countries of Malta, Switzerland, France, Sardegna, and Italy with Greg Osby. Mr. Williams has been a member of drummer Charli Persips' “Supersound” for several years and has appeared with Mr. Persip in a piano trio as well as at various festivals such as the New Jersey Jazz Fest and Duke Ellington Jazz Festival. Additionally, Williams has also performed with Joseph Jarman as part of AACM's concert season and as part of Jarman's group at the Vision Festival.
