Joe Williams (born Joseph Goreed; December 12, 1918 – March 29, 1999) was an American jazz singer. He sang with big bands such as the Count Basie Orchestra and the Lionel Hampton Orchestra and with his combos. He sang in two films with the Basie orchestra and sometimes worked as an actor. Williams was born in Cordele, Georgia, the son of Willie Goreed and Anne Beatrice née Gilbert. When he was about three, his mother and grandmother took him to Chicago.

Joe Williams Live ‎(LP, Album).

Legend dethrones Pharrell Williams' 'Happy' after 10 weeks on top, while Grande storms in at No. 3 with 'Problem,' featuring Iggy Azalea. John Legend takes over the Billboard Hot 100 at last, as his piano ballad "All of Me" unseats Pharrell Williams' "Happy," which reigned for 10 weeks. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande blasts in at No. 3 with "Problem" (featuring rap newcomer Iggy Azalea), which narrowly misses bowing at No. 1 itself

The album is by no means easy listening; the atonality is unrepentant. But Taylor’s septet finds numerous gorgeous spaces as they interpret free jazz not just as the freedom to improvise but the freedom to invent musical worlds and hidden syntaxes. The only way to tap into the rhythm-sound energy found in the amplitude of each time unit, as Taylor wrote in the liner notes, is to listen reverently. The focus also inevitably drifts to pianist Joe Zawinul, three years before he played the sustained organ notes that opened the title track of Miles Davis’ In a Silent Way; here, his composition Mercy, Mercy, Mercy merges soul and jazz in the hybrid timbre of his electric piano.

Joe Williams - vocals; Ben Webster - tenor sax; Junior Mance - piano; Bob Cranshaw - bass; Mickey Roker - drums. This CD fills an important gap in the discographies of both Joe Williams and Ben Webster. If Webster hadn't appeared, the set would still have been worth a listen; Williams always did his best work in front of an audience, and the fact that the small crowd had braved the storm to see him no doubt only added to his enthusiastic delivery. Blues songs like "Just A Sittin' and A Rockin' were tailor-made for Williams' rich baritone and exuberant presence.
