    Tony Williams Lifetime w/ Allan Holdsworth - Velvet Darkness Medley - Live 1976

    6:49

    A rare holy grail 1976 live recording of the New Tony Williams Lifetime featuring Allan Holdsworth, performing the 'Velvet Darkness Medley' of 'Good Clean Filth', 'Velvet Darkness', and 'Wish' from the Allan Holdsworth album 'Velvet Darkness'. The song 'Velvet Darkness' also appears under the title 'Shadows Of' on the 1976 album Gazeuse' by Gong, which features Allan Holdsworth. From a soundboard recording of the Lifetime gig (2nd set) at Gabe & Walkers, Iowa City, on March 3, 1976. SAFETY WARNING: Holdsworth is throwing some face-melting napalm here! For those who think that this is not Holdsworth playing, check him out just a few months later with Gong:

    Tony Williams Lifetime- Allan Holdsworth- Iowa 1976

    10:01

    Rare live recording from Gabe & Walkers, Iowa City, March 3, 1976 of the New Tony Williams Lifetime doing 'Inspirations of Love' from their Million Dollar Legs album, featuring Alan Pasqua-keyboards, Tony Newton-bass, Tony Williams-drums, and Allan Holdsworth-guitar. Holdsworth left the band shortly after MLD was recorded and was replaced for the subsequent tour by guitarist Marlon Graves. Live recordings of the Holdsworth lineup from this period are scarce. Holdsworth's solo starts here at about 3:30. By the time he hits 5:20 the boy is SICK! This is NOT Marlon Graves playing guitar, it is Allan Holdsworth, confirmed by Lifetime keyboardist Alan Pasqua and bassist Tony Newton. THOSE OF YOU WHO GRADUATED FROM MI and BERKLEE WHO CONTINUE TO SPECULATE THAT THIS IS NOT HOLDSWORTH NEED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL! :) You can do this by listening to this entire gig, which is posted at:

    At the above link go to 44:40, check out Holdsworth's solo on Red Alert and GET EDUCATED! :)
    To hear how MARLON GRAVES sounded with the Lifetime---nothing like this recording---check out this video: To hear the earliest known live recordings of the Believe It-era Lifetime with Allan Holdsworth go to:

    The Tony Williams Lifetime ft. Jack Bruce - Right On

    8:06

    (1999 Bill Laswell remix, precisely.) I know there are full albums of Turn it Over but I decided to just post just this song; it happens to be one of my favourite track from the album, and most importantly, one of the most intense. Surprisingly this track is different than Verve/Polydor's original version; bassist Jack Bruce is featured as a soloist prominently rather than guitarist John McLaughlin who shares background duties with organist Larry Young.

    Tony Williams - Wildlife

    5:18

    Biography by Scott Yanow: Tony Williams' death in 1997 of a heart attack after routine gall bladder surgery was a major shock to the jazz world. Just 51, Williams (who could be a very loud drummer) seemed so youthful, healthy, and ageless even though he had been a major drummer for nearly 35 years. The open style that he created while with the Miles Davis Quintet in the mid- to late '60s remains quite influential, and he had a long list of accomplishments during the decades that followed. Williams' father, a saxophonist, took his son out to clubs that gave him an opportunity to sit in; at 11, the youngster already showed potential. He took lessons from Alan Dawson, and at 15 was appearing at Boston-area jam sessions. During 1959-1960, Williams often played with Sam Rivers, and in December 1962 (when he was barely 17), the drummer moved to New York and played regularly with Jackie McLean. Within a few months he joined Miles Davis, where his ability to imply the beat while playing quite freely influenced and inspired the other musicians; together with Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter he was part of one of the great rhythm sections. Williams, who was 18 when he appeared on Eric Dolphy's classic Out to Lunch album, stayed with Davis into 1969, leading his own occasional sessions and becoming a household name in the jazz world.

    In addition to his interest in avant-garde jazz, Tony Williams was a fan of rock music, and when he left Miles he formed the fusion band Lifetime, a trio with Larry Young and John McLaughlin. After leading other versions of Lifetime (one of them starring Allan Holdsworth), Williams stuck to freelancing for a time, studied composition, and toured with Herbie Hancock's V.S.O.P. band. By the mid-'80s, he was heading his own all-star hard bop group which featured Wallace Roney as a surrogate Miles Davis and a repertoire dominated by the drummer's originals (including the standard Sister Cheryl). After breaking up his longtime quintet in 1995, Williams gigged a bit with a trio, recorded a very interesting set of original music for the Ark 21 label, and seemed to have a limitless future. His premature death makes one grateful that he started his career early and that he was extensively documented.

The truth is indeed stranger than fiction: during this same year Patrick O'Hearn formed Missing Persons with Zappa alumni Terry & Dale Bozzio and Warren Cuccurullo. Dedicated to the gifted and beautiful Cindy Blackman, who is keeping the spirit of Tony Williams alive and vibrant. To hear another live version of 'Hittin' on Six' recorded a year earlier, go to:

    Laura Tequila Logan and the Tony Williams Lifetime - You Make It Easy

    5:18

    The super sexy sultry soulful Laura 'Tequila' Logan with the Tony Williams Lifetime doing 'You Make It Easy' from their 1973 album 'The Old Bum's Rush'. After this recording Laura and a revamped lineup of the Lifetime featuring drummer Tony Williams, ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce, keyboardist Webster Lewis, and guitarist Allan Holdsworth recorded the unreleased album now known as 'Wildlife', precursor to the 1975 Lifetime album 'Believe It'. After parting ways with Williams in 1974, Logan joined ex-Lifetime organist Larry Young & his band FUEL, singing on their 1976 Arista album which features the now-classic rare groove track 'Turn Off the Lights'. After that time Logan seems to disappear, save for a couple of writing credits for dance tracks recorded by Betty Boo in the early '90s. Does anyone know where Laura 'Tequila' Logan is now? And is it true that she was married to drummer Tony Williams?
    To hear a rare live version of this song go to:

    The actual song starts at about 2:50 after a great Larry Young 'freakout' intro.
