|Ben Williams, Jazz Bass Player|
Ben Williams first saw an upright bass in the office of Representative John Conyers (D - Michigan) when he was six years-old. The rest, as they say, is history.
Check out this impromptu performance by Ben Williams and his band. Both songs they performed for NPR are deliciously smooth and oh-so-sweet. This kind of jazz makes me want to hang out in a dark corner of a smoky lounge, drinking straight bourbon from a dirty highball glass (although, sitting in a swivel office chair at my writing desk and listening through my headphones - drinking vodka and grapefruit from a milk glass - worked out just fine). Enjoy!
