Collin Williams is an accomplished saxophonist hailing from Durham North Carolina by way of Charlotte, NC. A recent two-time graduate of North Carolina Central’s (NCCU) Jazz department, Collin studied saxophone under the instruction of renowned saxophonists and educators Dr. Ira Wiggins and Dr. Brian Horton.
In his 18 years of playing the saxophone, Collin’s career has led him to play a range of musical situations including military bands, jazz/big bands, wedding bands, church/gospel bands, and even DJ’ing. His connection to NCCU has also landed him performances with many other renowned artists and groups native to NC, like trumpeter Al Strong, Soul Understated ft Mavis Swan Poole, Marcus Anderson, and more.
Recently Collin has decided to step out as a solo artist with a fresh new take on smooth jazz. His debut project entitled ‘Sax Talk’ is an exciting blend of hip-hop, Soul, R&B, Funk, Jazz, and Gospel.
