Sort of hard to believe that Anthony Williams was just nineteen when he lead his first session. The result was perhaps one of the most interesting artifacts of avant garde Jazz. Lifetime is a masterful work that may require several tries to truly get, but it is worth the effort Unflinchingly sparse, these pieces rely heavily on the negative space between notes and phrases, the record almost becomes more about what isn't there rather than what is. What remains is almost a sculpture of sound that may require you to abandon traditional notions of what music is and what it is for. Because of it's difficult nature and it's demands on the listener alone, Lifetime is an achievement and easily one of my favorite records of any genre. See where it takes you.
