Biography

Henry “Rubberlegs” Williams was a jazz/blues singer and dancer who enjoyed middling success in the ’30s, Williams biggest claim to posterity had mostly to do with being in the right place at the right time: Miles Davis made his initial recordings on a Williams-led session. He also recorded in 1945 with pianist Clyde Hart in a band that also included some of the first recordings of bebop pioneers Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. These and the Davis sessions were among his last; his performing career virtually ended soon after making those sides.
