Bay Area jazz pianist and vocalist Marty Williams was called “The Catalyst” by San Francisco Chronicle critic Phil Elwood. Anna DeLeon of Anna’s Jazz Island describes him as one of “the Bay Area’s treasures” and describes his piano playing and singing as “passionate, humorous, and unique.” She likens him to “Oscar Brown Jr. plus Mose Allison plus Monk with just a dash of Redd Foxx!”

Marty’s most recent CD, Long Time Comin’, showcases his incredible talent. He invites us to listen closely to his voice on the piano and in his interpretation of some of his favorite tunes. He tells us there’s a story there that just might give us some insight into the life of a very talented musician who has spent his life in pursuit of his own voice and style of dream.

Marty Williams will be joined by Ruth Davies on bass, Eric Swinderman on guitar, Jack Dorsey on drums, Kristen Strom on tenor sax, and DJ Drez.
