Ben Williams

Jazz bassist Ben Williams is a forward-thinking musician who crosses easily between straight-ahead, funk, and gospel-influenced jazz. A native of Washington, D.C., Williams graduated from the Duke Ellington School of Music before studying with renowned bassist Rodney Whitaker while earning a B.A. in jazz studies at Michigan State University. He is an in-demand sideman and has performed with a veritable who's who of jazz, including Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Mulgrew Miller, Terence Blanchard, and others. Williams is also a regular member of Stefon Harris' hip-hop-influenced Blackout ensemble and leads his own group. In 2009 Williams won the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition and subsequently signed a recording deal with Concord Records. In 2011 he released his debut solo album, State of Art. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi

At MSU Ben was humble and a AMAZING artist. Blessed my path crossed his at young stage of his life. He has blossomed into a the Jazz Trendsetter he is today.
Ben was a fellow classmate at Duke Ellington and I will always regret not taking the opportunity. . . Once upon a time. Even then, Ben was humble and crazy talented. He had performed on stage with Bill Cosby Before he had even got to HS! This man, Smh... Is simply, divinely summed up it one word : Amazing!
Heard him interviewed on my local station (KMHD) had to add him to my mix.
Well, this is extra awesome. Go Ben!!
