Jabo Williams is an obscure boogie-woogie pianist. Based on his recording of "Pratt City Blues", he is sometimes assumed to have lived in Pratt City, though the song had been recorded previously by Bertha "Chippie" Hill.

He was signed to Paramount Records in 1932 at the suggestion of St Louis, Missouri record store owner Jesse Johnson. He recorded eight sides in Grafton, Wisconsin in May of that year.
