Tipping My Hat To Leonard Shapes David William’s Sound

20 May

When first listening to David Williams, one is taken back to the classic jazz musicians and their characteristics of being strong vocalists. Featured on the track is a mix of sultry jazz and a reflecting lyrical rant. With the strumming of the guitar and the light variety of other instruments in the background, Williams pays homage to the traditional gypsy jazz while making it into something completely his own. The accordion, harmonica, and mandolin guitar are just a couple of the many types of instruments that are used in this album. As if his unique approach to Tipping My Hat To Leonard isn’t enough, David has also written books on fiction, poetry, and neuroscience and mythology, while simultaneously teaching classes on writing as well at universities. From the traditional jazz qualities mixed in with gypsy jazz, Williams has listeners earnestly awaiting more of his mesmerizing and enchanting sound.
