New program, also the second album by copyright could not be more apt title: Coming of Age, or “aging”, proclaims thirty musicians just loaded ironically, also suggests a good base to age and maturity unmatched success. His career was a huge step forward to winning the most prestigious competition, organized by the Monk Institute eight years ago, not only as a talented bass player, but also awarding his first bandwidth record for his life as an author of bass guitars.

His first album also benefited from a very good echo by the press, and the number’s demands grew even more: his band names included Pat Metheny Unity. Thanks to the band’s new record in 2012, Williams also received his first Grammy Award – no need for great talent to expect to continue. Thirty years old, besides Ben Williamst Metheny, he was invited by famous musicians such as Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, George Benson, Terence Blanchard, Roy Hargrove and Benny Golson.
