The Village Voice called him, the most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time and Time Out New York named him one of the 50 Greatest New York Musicians of All Time.

He has recorded over 150 albums, published six books, and taught and mentored hundreds of young musicians and artists.

William Mazza (visual art) Mr. Mazza is a visual artist and activist based in Brooklyn, NY. His work explores the spatial and temporal relationships of people to their natural and mediated environments.

Ongoing projects include collaborative, performative, and design with the organizations Arts for Art/Vision Festival, NYSoundCircuit, and the Belladonna* writers collaborative.
