Musician Jeff Parker curates an eclectic selection of music from his library of recordings, and occasionally invites guest selectors and performers from his wide community of collaborators and friends.
On this episode of The Time of Life, Jeff will be joined by Jamire Williams, a world renown musician and visual artist who has established himself as a leading force amongst creatives. A graduate of Houston’s acclaimed High School for the Performing & Visual Arts, Williams received his BFA from The New School in New York City in 2006. Since then he has grown into one of the premier voices of his generation performing and collaborating with such artist as Herbie Hancock, Solange Knowles, Robert Glasper, Big K.R.I.T., Christian Scott, Jason Moran, Kara Walker and Chassol. Williams released a solo concept record entitled ///// EFFECTUAL in 2016 where he explores the dimensions of the drum set in acoustic and electronic capacities accompanied by his personal abstract paintings. “Jamire Williams shows himself to be an inspired crafter of sound, capable of building entire worlds from just his drum hits.” – Pitchfork
