Heads of State—the collective quartet of living legends Gary Bartz, Larry Willis, David “Happy” Williams, and Al Foster—are celebrating the release of their highly anticipated new record, Four in One. Gary Bartz has been called a “remarkable saxophonist who can easily recall the more lyrical moments of John Coltrane or the R&B stylings of players like Hank Crawford” by Jazziz; Larry Willis is “the greatest pianist you’ve never heard of” according to TimeOut NY; David Williams, a renowned bassist with a remarkable history, is well known for his rapport with Billy Higgins in the Cedar Walton Trio; and TimeOut NY also says drumming legend Al Foster’s “brilliant timekeeping encompasses the best of the old and new school.” This is a special group that you won’t want to miss.
