Joseph Williams (born September 1, 1960) is the son of Star Wars composer John Williams. In the 1980s, he was a member of the music group TOTO and returned as the lead singer for Toto since 2010. Joseph collaborated with his father on Return of the Jedi by orchestrating and providing the English lyrics for "Lapti Nek", the featured musical number in Jabba's Palace, as well as arranging music for the film's finale, "Ewok Celebration." His contributions only appeared in the original theatrical edition (and subsequent video releases) and on the original soundtrack album and anthology box set, as they were both replaced in the 1997 Special Edition of the film. Years later, Joseph composed the source music heard in Dex's Diner in Attack of the Clones.
