Spring is the second album by American drummer Anthony Williams recorded in 1965 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Al Campbell awarded the album 3 stars and stated "Considering the extraordinary talent assembled for Tony Williams' second Blue Note date as a leader, this could have been a landmark session. Unfortunately, it's not. Spring isn't totally forgettable; on the contrary... However, the five Tony Williams compositions often failed to provoke the musicians into reaching crucial unity, making Spring haphazard, falling short of the expected goal".[2]
