Jessica Williams

I Let A Song Go Out of My Heart
The music of Duke Ellington

HEP Jazz Productions

Jessica Williams, solo piano

Yes, well, we love him (Duke) madly, too, but the music, however, speaks for itself. Still, the music will suffice to enable male listeners to transmute their baser instincts. This review could only be written for the lost souls who have never actually heard our lady play, most believers will purchase her records automatically. So now you have Jessica Williams playing the music of Duke Ellington, the man who should have been President of the entire world. Call it wishful thinking but madam's rendition of Prelude To A Kiss was this listener's favorite. At least, that's what it was until one heard her irresistible C-Jam Blues. Utterly delightful. Full of surprises and marvelous interpretation. Can hardly be bettered. Buy and be happy.
