About the Album

One of America's great musical treasures, pianist Jessica Williams returns with her third in a series of superlative solo piano recordings for Origin Records. Here, in performance at the Triple Door in Seattle, according to Williams, "There was so much love in the audience that it actually drew the music out of me. I have the best audiences I know of: never loud, raucous, or challenging. They're wonderful folks, and even the ones I hardly know seem like friends." In this environment, Williams creates a heartfelt and moving program of mostly original compositions that will surely stand as one of the most complete musical statements of her career.
