Clarence Williams (1893 - 1965) was an American jazz musician, who tried his hand (successfully) in almost all spheres of the music industry: he was known as a pianist, composer, promoter, vocalist, theatrical producer, and publisher. Having run away from home at age 12 to join a travelling show, he settled in New Orleans and became a well-regarded entertainer, while also composing new songs. After touring as a musician, he started a music publishing company and a record label, producing and participating in early recordings by Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Bessie Smith, Virginia Liston, Irene Scruggs, and many others.
The Clarence Williams Collection – Volume 3 covers Williams' prolific output from 1929-30. Transferred and re-mastered by John R.T. Davis, the sound quality is outstanding.
