One Question Interviews: Neosho

Justin Bernard Williams (Neosho)

SPB: Who is your favorite 1960s artist?

Justin: Wayne Shorter... and not because of the saxophone. Ask me about jazz, and I'm more of an admirer than a "jazz player." Shorter's importance is rooted in how he had the power to influence Miles Davis (arguably, THE musical mind of the 20th century). As part of Mile's Second Great Quintet, Shorter was a prominent composer of the group. Often writing scores that Miles chose to leave in-tact... rare for one as opinionated as Miles. That's more than enough to have my attention, admiration, and respect.
