Bassist/Composer/Artist Darryl Williams is a first call bassist for many artists in the genre of Contemporary/Smooth Jazz, touring with artists like Euge Groove, Peter White, Michael Lington, Marc Antoine, Jackiem Joyner, Alex Bugnon, Gerald Albright and many more as well as being one of the main stage bassists for the Dave Koz and Friends at Sea Smooth Jazz cruise.  Darryl is also a member of the very successful, L.A. Collective band, along with guitarist Adam Hawley, keyboardist Greg Manning, and drummer Tony Moore.  The L.A. Collective originally came together as a backup band for different artists on the 2014 Dave Koz Cruise to Alaska. However, the band’s success catapulted them into deciding they would be a permanent fixture in the Southern California contemporary jazz music scene.

Darryl is back to talk about his new release, Here to Stay, featuring Euge Groove, Ronnie Foster, drummer Tony Moore, guitarist Michael Simms, and more.
