ABOUT THE ARTIST

James Williams adores the music of Louis Armstrong, and has three
primary outlets for his passion: the James Williams Band (aka the
James Williams New Orleans Jazz Quintet), a high-class trumpet and
vocal affair that uses upright bass; the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys
Traditional Jass Band, a raucous traditional jazz and brass band that
is backed by sousaphone/tuba; and he helps lead the New Orleans
Classic Big Band, the hottest and coolest new big band in years to
celebrate the music of Louis Armstrong and the golden age of big band
music.

Tonight he has formed his James Williams Band with an A-team lineup,
including the legendary Warmdaddy Wess Anderson on saxophone, as well
as Dave Hull on piano, Gary Washington on bass, and Trent O’Neal on
drums.

Mr Williams tears up stages on vocals and trumpet in all three of the
above bands, and he has performed recently at New Orleans Jazz &
Heritage Festival, Megève Jazz Festival, Monte Carlo Sporting Summer
Fest, Red Cross Gala of Monaco, Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, North
Sea Jazz Festival, French Quarter Festival, Ascona Jazz Festival,
Vitoria-Gasteiz Jazz Festival, New Orleans Meets in Zofingen, NIPANY
Festival, and more. He has also headlined at incredible clubs around
the world as well, including Minton’s Playhouse, Ronnie Scott’s, The
Blue Note, Brooklyn Bowl, The Hamilton, BB King’s, Duc Des Lombards,
Cliff Bell’s, Tipitina’s, dba, The Spotted Cat, The Cutting Room, and
more.
