Wikipedia : This day (February 23, 1997), in Daly City, California, died Anthony Tillmon ‘Tony’ Williams, an American drummer and pioneer of jazz fusion.

@Drummerworld :

@Jazz Profiles : Instead of rudimental phrases, Tony Williams offered drummers a whole new concept of playing Jazz drums based around what has been described as “controlled chaos.”

@last.fm : Born in Chicago and growing up in Boston, Williams began studies with master drummer Alan Dawson at an early age and began playing professionally at the age of 13 with saxophonist Sam Rivers. Jackie McLean hired Williams at 16.

@Discogs : He got most recognition for his fusion project; Lifetime (3) band with John Stipe. He also was part of Miles Davis Quintet, The in the 60’s and did extensive touring with Herbie Hancock’s V.S.O.P band as well.
