Piano trio, straight mainstream jazz with a warm heart. Williams has a classic polished "jazz" sound, but her playing has flair. Her solos are bright, with little surprises in the inflections and accents, and the occasional fast flurry of notes. Tracks mix old, worn standards with some originals.
1- Soft slow Miles cover, with Flamenco drama of course. Gets louder later on.
2- Relaxed mid/fast, w/clever piano intro
3- Slow, romantic
4- Bouncy midtempo, like "Well You Needn't." Cool left hand solo early on, followed by even cooler right-hand solo
5- Sad. Slow start, into brisk soloing
6- Bright midtempo
7- Soft start into perky midtempo solo. Cool ending w/flourishes
8- Jaunty old-time swing. SEGUE into:
9- Languid, slow take on Gershwin's "Summertime"
