We remember jazz drummer Tony Williams, who died of a heart attach Sunday at the age of 51. As a teen prodigy, Williams played with the Miles Davis Quintet, and later drummed with Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane. (REBROADCAST from 5/25/90)
Williams left high school at 16 to become a professional musician. He joined Miles Davis's band the next year, and later formed his electric fusion group, Lifetime. Williams' new solo album--a return to acoustic jazz--is called Native Heart.
