Tony Williams can be regarded a generation-gap-filler in the jazz world. He was one of the most influential jazz drummers of the 60s and one of the pioneers of jazz fusion. Till his death in 1997, Williams was a much respected drummer of the earlier version of jazz, as well as the avant-garde jazz. In retrospect, it's easy to see why Williams' accomplishments in the field of fusion often conceal his earlier organic efforts; the boisterous music of the '70s is undeniably more popular than the experimental ideals of avant-garde jazz. Nonetheless, this music deserves to be recognized and enjoyed. Constantly brimming with spirit, Life Time is an enthralling debut from a young trailblazer.
