This article will cover some of the highlights from my recent interview with the one and only Will Williams. If you want to know more about Will and his new album, The Saxophone Sessions, check out my in-depth interview with him here.

New Album Trailer, Tour And More!

Since the beginning of this year, Will has released a number of teasers and clips from The Saxophone Sessions. And the response has been great! Each new video is more breathtaking than the last, especially considering that Will is now well into his eighties! The last teaser alone has over 2.5 million views on YouTube.

But enough about the past… let’s dive into the exciting future of one of the most iconic saxophonists of all time!

New Album Details

The Saxophone Sessions is available now! Pre-orders are available, as are tickets to the upcoming tour. And in case you missed it, here are the tracklist and album art for the new album:

  • Sweet Georgia Brown
  • Blues In The Bottle
  • Harlem Shake
  • Dizzy Miss Lizzy
  • Tush
  • Honeycomb
  • After Hours

When I saw the tracklist for The Saxophone Sessions, my head immediately spun with excitement. Not only does Will’s amazing music bring back so many memories, but the album features a number of his classic songs from the 1960s and 70s. And since I am a huge Frank Sinatra fan, these songs specifically were recorded with him in mind!

Many of the songs on The Saxophone Sessions feature some of the most famous and recognizable voices in popular music. Jack & Frankie included, and you can’t help but recognize these famous voices even if you’ve never heard of the songs. The only thing is, these aren’t actually the original singers; they were lip-syncing!

But who cares about technicalities… this is the great Frank Sinatra they’re talking about! And what a voice he has! It’s difficult to put into words the impact this singer has had on millions of people all over the world. He is in a league of his own, and it’s an honor to have his songs on your album. It really is.

Personal Touch

Even though Will is one of the most legendary saxophonists of all time, he still chooses to play everything by ear. This, of course, is something that makes him even more incredible. He never wrote down a single note, and for the most part, neither did anyone else when they were playing with him.

Every year Will would work on a few new songs with a few different bands. This was his way of staying fresh and continuing to improve his craft. And even though he was in his seventies and eighties, he still found time to experiment and play around with different musicians. This is something that he continues to do to this day. It’s his way of giving back to the community that has always supported him.

The Future Looks Bright

Now, more than ever, it’s important to look forward and not back. And while Will has undoubtedly accomplished a great deal in his life, he still has a lot more to give. The future looks bright for this amazing human being, and I for one, am so happy to see him still bringing music and joy to others with his incredible talent.

One of my favorite things about Will is how down-to-earth he still is. Even though he has a lot of fans and a lot of recognition, he genuinely interacts with his fans on social media. And he still performs a number of shows a week. It takes a lot of courage to be 80 years young, and every night, Will shows us how much he values his fans by bringing joy and delight to their lives through his music.
