Claude 'Fiddler' Williams is a living national treasure, a jazz pioneer who remains a vital interpreter of the swing tradition. One of the few violinists to achieve prominence in jazz, Claude plays with a gritty, hornlike-sound which is instantly recognizable. Some seventy years after his initial 1929 recordings with Andy Kirk's 12 Clouds of Joy, here is Claude swinging with panache and offering ever-inventive playing, supported by a dream group of players: bassist Keter Betts, pianist Henry Butler, guitarist Joe Cohn, drummer Jimmy Lovelace and alto saxophonist Bobby Watson. Produced by Russ Dantzler and Scott Billington.
