TONY WILLIAMS DISCOGRAPHY
With drum solo discography included
This is a discography of all the Tony Williams cds that I have been able to find and his drum solos.  Songs with drums solos have the length of the drum solo given to the right of the song time and are in red.   I started making my own cds of just his drum solos to listen to and then thought maybe other people might want to listen to them too.  

I hope you enjoy them.
(It takes about a minute for the solos to load)
