In May of 1980, Tony Williams went to the Zuckerfabrik recording studio in Stuttgart/Germany, together with Tom Grant and Patrick O’Hearn. After just two days in the studio, the album was mixed and ready for release. It was a limited edition LP of only 500 vinyl copies when it was originally released.
Now, for the first time in more than 40 years, Tony Williams’ 1980 “Play Or Die” album is available – on CD and digitally with a significantly improved sound.

Featuring Tom Grant on piano and drums, Dave Captein on bass, and young trumpet phenom, Justin Copeland.”
