“In the technical tradition of players like John Butcher, and emotionally (most famously) Albert Ayler, Williams is a proponent of the extended techniques of the saxophone, spitting out harmonics, weeping ‘multiphonics’, the reed equivalent of a guitarist creating feedback and noise from an amplifier and effects pedals.” Dan Brown (Folio Weekly)
