MUSIC REVIEW BY Martin Z. Kasdan Jr., Louisville Music News

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Jessica Williams has produced an album of intimate solo piano pieces, rendered with elegance and emotion. There's a backstory here, that Ms. Williams suffered a lumbar spine collapse, followed by lengthy and extensive medical procedures. Her self-penned liner notes suggest that the nonpyrotechnical approach was a result of the spine issues, but had she made no mention of her problem, the album would still be a testament to a musical vision of "less is more." Of nine songs, all are classics except for her lovely "Paradise of Love." Her performance of "My Foolish Heart" is breathtakingly slow; time seems to stand still as she delicately unfurls her version. "But Beautiful" seems a meditation on beauty. She closes with a somber and reflective "Somewhere," from West Side Story. Here's wishing her continued recovery, and many more albums to join her already substantial discography.
