Album Notes
Buddy Williams has become one of the best drummers in the music world. Known world-wide for his dynamic energy, electrifying technique and unerring ability to compliment and accompany the most discriminating of instruments and talents.

Buddy is not classified as just a drummer, his abilities extend beyond that into the abilities of vocals, composer, arranger and producer.

Having been in the business for over forty years, Buddy started playing professionally at the age of eight years old. Subsequently, Buddy attended the prestigious High School of Music and Art (along with other such notables as Noel Pointer, Tom Browne, Dave Valentine, Marcus Miller and Bernard Wright) and the Manhattan School of Music in New York.

A prolific performer, Buddy’s abilities span across varied musical styles. His playing with the group ‘Natural Essence’, while attending the Music & Arts High School, led to later opportunities with notable and diverse musicians.

His exhilarating presence and melodic insight creates an unyielding guide which has led him to tour most recently with Herbie Mann’s 40th Year Reunion Band, Tania Maria, George Benson, Roberta Flack and Patti Austin.

Buddy William’s credentials list as ‘Who’s Who’ of the music industry. His virtuosity and unique style has been utilized in touring with the best… Tom Browne, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, The Manhattan Transfer, Al Jarreau, Bob James, Peabo Bryson, Will Downing, Hugh Masakela, Chaka Khan, Nancy Wilson, George Duke, Bette Midler, Stanley Turrentine, Noel Pointer, Asford & Simpson, Herb Alpert, Linda Ronstadt, Teruo Nakamura, Michael Franks, Nat Adderley Sr. & Jr., Michael Jackson, The Sisters of Glory (Thelma Houston, Cece Peniston, Phoebe Snow, Lois Walden and Alberta Walker), Mariah Carey, Anita Baker, Lena Horne and the list continues… With credentials such as this, one has to be more than good… one has to be exceptional!

Buddy’s Musical integrity, heart and soul are ever present in the music we hear every day. Perhaps his face is not known, but our ears recognize him in a ‘heartbeat’.

A true ‘musician’s musician’, Buddy Williams can only be described as… distinct.
