Summary, etc.: Joe Williams' remarkable smooth bariton voice was one of the wonders of jazz. Considered the last great big band singer, Williams single handedly revived the fortunes of the Count Basie Band when he joined them in 1954, and he quickly rose to become a star in his own right.Joe performs his best known and most loved songs.
