Learning From Bass Players Improves Tony Willams

I’ve learned probably the most from bass players -Tony Williams

I’ve learned probably the most from bass players.

Drummers have to work closely with bassists, and I’ve been trying to understand bass players. It’s not just playing your instrument, getting off on how good you are alone. It’s also seeing how well you can apply yourself to other people’s music and how you can give them what they want. It’s not always what you think is best, but rather what someone else might think is best.

Tony WIlliams
Modern Drummer, January 1979
