Some Tony Williams...

Here's an incredible drum solo from Tony Williams.

There's not much footage of "early" Tony soloing (let alone on an extended solo) so this is quite the find !

Hey, if anyone comes across footage of the Miles Davis Quintet (with Tony Williams) playing on the Steve Allen Show, can you please forward the link to me ?

This was one of Wayne Shorter's first gigs with the band. Specifically, I'm looking for the footage of them playing "No Blues" (also known as "Pfrancing"). Tony plays a short but mean solo over the form on that one too.

Terry Clarke showed me a video of that once but haven't been able to track it down since !
