Steve Williams & Jazz Nation

Composer, arranger and saxophonist Steve Williams is the founder and leader of the Jazz Nation Big Band. He formed the group in 2010 as a vehicle for his original compositions and arrangements. Jazz Nation includes 17 of the most unique musicians in the metropolitan Washington, D. C. area. The band includes players such as the phenomenal Luis Hernandez on tenor sax, Mike Pope (bassist with David Sanborn and others) on bass, grammy winner Joe McCarthy on drums and well-known New York guitarist, Pete McCann. The group released its first album August 21, 2012 on OA2 Records. The album features the great Jazz clarinetist Eddie Daniels and is entitled “Steve Williams & Jazz Nation with Eddie Daniels.” During his thirty-five year career as a freelance musician, Steve has appeared on several albums including the Grammy winning “Caribbean Jazz Project/ Afro-Bop Alliance Big Band featuring Dave Samuels.” He has performed with The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, toured with several big bands and was a semi-finalist in the 1988 Hennessey Cognac Jazz Search
