Album Notes
Darryl Williams needs no introduction among the many smooth jazz giants he’s backed overthe years. Now, rolling out his own Here to Stay, he demonstrates why he’s so highly regarded among those giants. This is one album that gets off the ground in a flash and heads directly for the stratosphere with a huge display of power, charm, melody, and, of course, that inexplicable thang that moves all C-jazzers.

Fueled by the presence and contributions of such luminaries as guitarists Paul Brown and U-Nam; keyboardists/pianists Jonathan Fritzen, Greg Manning, Scott Wilkie, and the prolific and iconic Jeff Lorber; saxmen Michael Lington, Elan Trotman, Marcus Anderson, and Euge Groove (the latter also serving as co-producer of this fine project, Williams beats a solid groove path from the infectious title track to the slick and polished mid-tempo lure of “Now or Never” to the up-tempo dancer “Do You Remember” to the soulful and easy “Reflections” to the mid-tempo finger-snappin’ “Harveston Way” and beyond.

Among the other notable tracks here are the inclusion of “The Doctor,” written by the late Fattburger keyboardist/pianist Carl Evans Jr., and a great cover of that 70s hit “Don’t Ask My Neighbors,” first recorded by that knock-‘em-dead tight circle of harmony, The Emotions, and revived here beautifully by Ashling “Biscuit” Cole.

Williams has, over the years, been a true complement to those with whom he’s played, and it’s not difficult at all for me to predict that, now breaking through with this debut, the bassist is very much Here to Stay.
Get a taste of this. – Ronald Jackson

Darryl Williams has spent the past decade playing with a literal “Who’s Who” of Smooth Jazz royalty. So it’s not surprising that he creates his groove intensive, in the pocket mix of all-out funk and sensual silk vibes on HERE TO STAY with the genre’s greatest artists. Williams’ invite list includes spirited contributions from, among others, Michael Lington, who is featured on the current Smooth Jazz hit, "Do You Remember," Marcus Anderson, Paul Brown, Jeff Lorber, Scott Wilkie and Euge Groove, who just so happened to co-produced. The legendary sideman is definitely HERE TO STAY as a major genre artist!
