C.I. Williams discography This is journeyman alto saxophonist C.I. Williams' first album as a leader in 25 years. Essentially a swing player with deep roots in the blues, Williams has a rich, languorous tone reminiscent of Johnny Hodges. This is most evident on a handful of straight-out blues, including two originals and the Ellington/Hodges classic "Jeep's Blues." Williams receives excellent support here from veterans like Keter Betts, Jimmy Cobb, Ed Cherry, and Larry Willis. Although the song selection skews toward the too-familiar -- "Misty," "Round Midnight," "Lover Man," "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" -- this superb-sounding album is a fitting showcase for Williams' alto talents. ~ Joel Roberts Recorded at Mapleshade Studio, Upper Marlboro, Maryland on May 9 & 10, 1995 and March 11 & 12, 1996. Personnel: C.I. Williams (alto); Ed Cherry (guitar); Don Blackman, Larry Willis (piano); Jimmy Cobb (drums). Liner Note Author: Pierre M. Sprey. Recording information: Mapleshade (05/09/1995-03/12/1996). Author: Hamiet Bluiett. Photographer: Eldon Baldwin. Personnel includes: C.I.

Frank Foster's Loud Minority Orchestra only made a few records during its decade or so of existence and Well Water is one of its best. Listeners expecting the music to be similar to that of Foster's former boss Count Basie should realize that Foster's playing by 1977 was more strongly influenced by John Coltrane than by Lester Young, and that his writing is much more modern than that usually heard in the Basie band or even in the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra. The performances do swing in their own way and include dynamic solos by the altoist C.I. Williams, both Foster and Bill Saxton on tenors, trumpeter Charles Sullivan and pianist Mickey Tucker. With Elvin Jones (making one of his few appearances with ...
