Latest news: Strawberry Bricks is the opposite of a "reaction" video. It is the long view on progressive rock's classic era, one that's taken decades to develop through repeated listening. It is history through the eyes of time, written in a historical perspective; and, emphatically, not a knee-jerk reaction ready-made for clicks and views.

Whether you are the novice getting your cape dirty for the first time, or a seasoned veteran who enjoys a fresh perspective, this is your mountain to climb." - Eric Reidelberger, Ugly Things Magazine

Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
Just 17 years old when he joined Miles Davis's quintet in 1962, drummer Anthony "Tony" Williams had spent his earliest years playing in the clubs of Boston. His debut as a band leader was the 1964 release Life Time for the Blue Note label. By the end of the decade though, Williams was headed in a completely different direction. New York City was fertile ground at the time and seeds of jazz fusion were being sown. Williams (among many others) jammed with Jimi Hendrix, and there's little doubt of the guitarist's influence on what would follow.
