Ernie Ball was feelin’ “all that jazz” in August—sponsoring the OurStage Jazz Channel for the month and offering artists a chance to win a years supply of strings and accessories. The fastest fretting, hardest hitting, six string slinging jazz cats entered for a chance to win, but only one killer artist could take home the grand prize.
That artist is California composer, bassist and producer Darryl Williams. Williams’ distinctive chops have landed him gigs with the likes of Chaka Khan, Brenda Russell, Tevin Campbell and many more. With a fresh supply of strings, Williams is sure to be be-boppin’ his butt off into 2012.
