The legendary Yankees slugger and chart-topping guitarist returns! After one of the most storied careers in baseball (which included four gold-glove awards, six American League pennants and an ALCS MVP award), Bernie Williams launched his second career as a jazz guitarist and didn’t miss a beat. Having topped the contemporary jazz Billboard Chart with #1 singles, recorded albums with guests as varied as Bruce Springsteen and Jon Secada, and been invited to sit in with the Allman Brothers Band at their storied Beacon Theatre residencies, Williams established himself as a formidable talent instantly and hasn’t slowed down since.
