   Al Williams—drummer, entrepreneur, & promoter of (J)azz—has a well-earned reputation as a musical mover & shaker. Early experience included touring as a percussionist w/ the Jennie LeGon Caribbean Dance Troupe. He has performed @ the Oklahoma Jazz Festival, the Mt. Hood Jazz Festival. His band, the Al Williams Jazz Society, has performed at the UCLA Jazz Festival, the Central Avenue Jazz Festival, the Long Beach Jazz Festival, the L.B. Museum of Art Summer Concert series, the Russian River Jazz Festival, & the Temecula Jazz Festival. His recording &/or touring experience includes work w/ (J)azz greats, Hampton Hawes (Something Special), Leroy Vinnegar (The Kid), Teddy Edwards, Willie Bobo, Kenny Burrell, Eddie Harris, Freddie Hubbard, Sarah Vaughn, & Roy Ayers.  On a more bluesy note, he has kept time for Jimmy Witherspoon & Lowell Folsom. 
   In 1978, he opened Long Beach’s first jazz club, The Jazz Safari, near the Queen Mary.  Expanding and changing the name in 1986, Williams relocated to downtown Long Beach & his new club, Birdland West, earned acclaim from musicians & critics alike as one of the finest (J)azz clubs in the nation.  
   In l987, w/ musical momentum in high gear, he founded Rainbow Promotions & produced the 1st Annual Long Beach Jazz Festival. In August 2023, the Long Beach Jazz Festival will celebrate its 36th year & continues to be a major musical event in Southern California.
