Jessica Williams

By Published: December 13, 2008
For those who wish to expand their knowledge of Williams' life and art by reading about her, there is a special resource: jessicawilliams.com. Many jazz musicians have websites now, of course, but there are few that provide a self-portrait so complete and so intimate. Williams' website contains the standard biography and schedule and newsletter and there are 40 of her titles available for purchase. But the photos section is enormous, including whole galleries devoted to her pets and there is detailed technical information (and photos) of her home recording studio. The website also contains "The Collected Writings Of Jessica Williams"—over 100 essays and poems and journal entries. They reveal that Jessica Williams is a uniquely creative mind and spirit, not only in her music, but also in the enormous number of subjects she has deeply thought and cared about.
