Jonathan Tunick recalls Buster Williams’ lush sound

To the editor:

Thanks so much for Peter Zimmerman’s interview with Buster Williams in the February issue of Allegro. I would like to add to the list of Buster’s many accomplishments the year or so that he spent as a member of the orchestra for the original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company.” I remember with pleasure his lush sound, propulsive time and the good times we had during the Boston tryouts.
