I was working w.a student the other day on Latin stuff and he wanted to work on "Desafinado",so I said lets listen to the original recording from Getz/Gilberto. I asked him if he knew who the bassist was on the recording.He didn't know,and as we listened I remembered doing a search on Tommy Williams name one time on AMG.I have him on a wonderfull album by Art Farmer called "Art", and he plays the melody on the not so coomon tune "So Beats my Heart for You". Anyways my point is what ever happened to this guy? He is a great player and do yourself a favor and go get this Art Farmer disc[I think it is on CD now} He is playing w.Tommy Flanagan on piano and Albert "Tootie' Heath on drums and this was recorded in 1960 on the Argo label[#678} It is a swinging album,one of Art's best and you won't believe this cat on bass !!! I know he did another record or two w.Getz and he's playing nice and simple on one of the all-time great bossa albums.Talk about the ultimate sideman...Maybe someone has info on what happened to this great player,is he still alive?What other recordings is he on?
