Happy Birthday Tony Williams (1945-1997)

An amazing musician. Along with Keith Moon, he has always been my favorite drummer (interestingly, Moon was also William's favorite drummer, see here). Here is Tony, at age 22, driving with beautiful ferocity one of the greatest groupings of musicians ever assembled: the Miles Davis Quintet featuring Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Herbie Hancock. The first time I heard this, I was completely blown away.
