About this image

A certain level of artistry evolves when you combine R&B, Jazz, and Funk with trumpet, piano, and bass, and one man, singer/songwriter/producer, T. L. Williams is one of the voices of a new generation redefining today’s music. The Chicago native has found a way to weave together extreme varieties of musical genres, instrumentation, and classical pop culture, creating a new platform of true musical art, a sound that comes from a combination of growing up in a musical family, receiving mentorships from legends such as Wynton Marsalis and the late record producer, Carl Davis. The timelessly funky, 2015 hit, “Gettin’ Mo Money than You” and the majestic “Into You” continue to gain significant buzz worldwide, quickly making T. L. one of the definitive artists of the crossover fusion movement.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
