Rising-star bassist Ben Williams performs with his group at the Seattle Art Museum, downtown. The Washington DC-born, Harlem-based bandleader, musical educator, composer, electric and acoustic bassist was the winner of the 2009 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition, an award that helped the young artist produce his debut CD release State of Art. That record has galvanized Williams as an emerging and prominent voice in jazz today.

State of Art is a mature statement stamped with his voice: "I wanted to make an album that regular nine-to-five people could enjoy," Williams says, "and to make a deep artistic statement as well. I like music that grooves, and I make sure that my music feels good."

Even before the release of State of Art, Williams was one of the most sought after young bassists in the world; his resume is a who's who of jazz wisdom: Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Terence Blanchard, Christian McBride Big Band, Nicholas Payton, Paquito D'Rivera, Cyrus Chestnut, Benny Golson, Roy Hargrove, and Mulgrew Miller, to name a few.

This group of young Harlem/NYC artists brings a deep expression of the jazz continuum to SAM. Get your tickets today.
