Billy Childs; Buster Williams; Carl Allen

One of the most promising of the pianist-composers of the 1990s, Billy Childs is a superb player and an underrated writer. He toured with J.J. Johnson (with whom he made his recording debut), graduated from USC, had an important association with Freddie Hubbard (1978-1984), and led Night Flight (a group with Dianne Reeves). Childs recorded four albums as a leader for Windham Hill Jazz (starting in 1988) and one for Stretch; started writing commissioned works in 1992 (including a 1994 concerto for the Monterey Jazz Festival), and has worked with Allan Holdsworth, Eddie Daniels, Bobby Hutcherson, and Branford Marsalis, among others, in addition to leading his own regular quartet. Beginning with 2001's Night Sessions, Childs came to even wider recognition as a member of trumpeter Chris Botti's ensemble. With Botti, the pianist has appeared on such albums as 2002's December, 2004's When I Fall in Love, 2005's To Love Again: The Duets, 2007's Italia, 2009's Live in Boston, and 2012's Impressions. In 2014, Childs paid tribute to one of his longtime idols, the late folksinger Laura Nyro, with Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Yes, yes, yes. I just posted a comment earlier re how nice it would be to see the side artists. How nice to see them listed here. Hooray!!!!!! ! !
Billy Childs toured with Chris Botti and I had the pleasure of seeing him a dozen times, but I also saw him at a small jazz club in Fullerton,Ca l i f o r n i a (Steamer's), with his own combo, and he was polite and awesome!
This is the first time that I have had the pleasure of hearing Billy Childs, and it will not be the last! Terrific!!!
My first exposure. Very nice piano. Great bassist too.

I've had the pleasure of seeing Billy Childs w/ Chris Botti at Carnegie Hall, amazing jazz pianist.

Under-apprec i a t e d and not well-known, he is a magnificent piano player. Chris Botti was wise to use both him and guitarist Mark Whitfield in his band -- both are spectacular musicians!!

I've been to a couple of Chris Botti concerts where Billy Childs was on piano. Billy's piano solos are ridiculous!

reminds me of the Bubba Cobb Trio who used to play at a jazz club in Lake Buena Vista FL at Disney's "Village" as it was called back in the 80's
