Tony Williams

Tony Williams (December 12, 1945 - February 23, 1997) was an American jazz drummer. His band, Lifetime, is considered a pioneer in the fusion movement, a combination of rock music and jazz. He had early fame at age 17 with Miles Davis and was the "spark" that ignited some of Miles' best post bop in the 1960's. He lived and taught in the San Francisco Bay Area until his death.
