Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release, the sophomore album from acclaimed bassist Ben Williams. Continuing to implore the common elements of jazz, hip-hop, rock and soul, the young bandleader embarks on a bolder journey in this album with more music by his own hand and a reflection of his new outlook as a seasoned musician. Coming of Age for the 30-year-old Williams means playing a lively role among his peers and a vital part in the music world at large. Winner of the 2009 Monk Institute Competition, Williams cites this as a turning point in his musical odyssey, "My career as a bandleader and composer started from the moment I won," he says. "I had this opportunity to say something-and an obligation, too." Eight tracks.
