His sophmore cd, "Coming of Age" presented by bassist, bandleader, composer, Ben Williams who brings his band, Sound Effect to the stage. The cd is a collection of new works reflecting Williams' wide-ranging musical interests and his maturity, growth and development in composition that assumes a mantle of leadership in contemporary music. He enlists the soulfulness of singer-songwriter Goapele on"Voice of Freedom" (for Mandela) and records with open mind. He pays homage to jazz fusion group, Weather Report where he drives samba rhythms on "Forecast"; and is further inspired by Wayne Shorter with a fluid of fretless grooves on "Half Steppin'".
