    TRIO with Gregory Ryan & Vinnie Sperrazza

    6-10pm

    Hillstone
    E54th & 3rd Ave
    NYC

    James WilliamsThe music of James Williams!

    James Williams would have celebrated his 62nd birthday last week. In addition to his beautiful music, he was a dear friend and mentor to me. We’ll be celebrating his memory with a bunch of his tunes.

    I’ve been playing on the Steinway B tucked in the corner of the lively bar in this steak-n-ribs joint with some fantastic musicians 2-3 times a week since 2002! No cover charge and the food is delicious. Come for the music. Stay for the spinach and artichoke dip!
