Pianist William Beatty / Countdown featuring Lloyd Williams - Double Cd Release
On Saturday March 17th at The Back Room in Berkeley
pianist William Beatty will begin the show with selections from his recently recorded cd,  titled 'The Path of Green Stones',  and a piece or two just off the presses. The Cd features the remarkable player and composer Aaron Germain on bass,  Deszon Claiborne, percussion par excellence on drums. Recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.

Back in the early 1990's The Pasand Lounge on Union St in San Francisco and  their location in Berkeley  featured live music every night. The Countdown Band rotated weeks between the venues with two other house bands, backing the premier vocalists of the Bay Area. Lloyd Williams and Countdown performed for capacity audiences of listeners and dancers,
honing a very tight sound over their years together.

Lloyd William's stellar vocals are heard as the singing voice of Otis Day and the Knights in the classic movie 'Animal House', singing 'Shout' and 'Shamalama Ding Dong'. Lloyd's vocal career includes performing with The Undisputed Truth, George Clinton and Parliment Funkedelics.

After a reunion gig at the home of Chef Kurt Koessel,(backyard on a beautiful day in early summer, red beans and rice ),  Countdown and Lloyd recorded a Cd at Bellboy Recording Studio in Richmond California. The arrangements came together like it was yesterday. Latriece Love and Ahsah-Ti Tyehimba Ford  iced the cake with their vocals!

Countdown is:

Archie Williams - guitar
Bill Beatty     - piano.              
Aaron Germain   - bass,
Mark Lee       -  drums  

Latriece Love and  AhSahti Tyehimba Ford  -  vocals
