Fiona's Comments

Oh my god, what a beautiful song. A live recording. I can sense the crowd was as transfixed by the performance as I was just sitting her listening to it on my laptop speakers.

About the Album

Refusing to declare itself of any genre, Jessica Williams' new collection of solo piano works was mostly composed on the spot over several performances at Seattle's Triple Door. The collection formed itself through Williams' countless listenings of the raw recordings with the separate pieces becoming a single story in her mind. It's a novel written in public and the theme, while oceanic in scope, is musically subtle as the intention of it did not exist during its performance. Containing very few pre-rehearsed lines - a stellar rendition of John Coltrane's "To Be" and sketches of two original works - it exists only for the symphonic nature of the solo piano.
