Sherry Williams w/Pat Senatore Trio
The buttery voice of Sherry Williams is an oasis in any madness our world offers.
When you listen to her you realize immediately that she is a consummate artist - the real thing. Williams is what they called in the old days, a storyteller - she paints pictures with words. Yet she bridges the gap between the past and the present. Her masterful interpretation of the lyrics makes an over worn song meaningful, or brings an unknown song to life as is evidenced in her latest release You Must Believe In Spring. There she blends the straightforward elements of traditional pop with a decidedly mainstream jazz execution. "At each performance, my delivery is a little different, because I have experienced that additional kernel of life which changes everything; my point of view, my attitudes... My entire life experience is the point of reference from which I sing a song. I believe my gift is the ability to draw on that experience, be fully present in the moment, and unabashedly share it with the listener." And this is who she really is - open and accessible.
It seems as though Sherry was destined to sing this kind of music. When she was a young girl in Pittsburgh, where she was born, her father often blew into his trombone mouthpiece as he moved around the house. He had a collection of 78 LPs of the big bands of the day, as well as many of the great smaller groups like Shearing, Brubeck and Hampton. Growing up with this music, along with having classical piano lessons from age six to age sixteen, formed her musical sensibilities. She swings relentlessly, and sings ballads with exquisite phrasing and taste. In her second release, A Taste Of Sherry, she does a version of the poignantly beautiful Lush Life that will make you cry.
The Pat Senatore Trio
"When bassist Pat Senatore convenes his trio with pianist Josh Nelson and drummer Mark Ferber, something quite magical happens. Within the contours of the song form, a three-way musical conversation transpires where color, space, dynamics, rhythm and melodic invention flow freely. It’s supposed to happen all the time in jazz but rarely does it occur with such joyful synchronicity.” --Kirk Silsbee, Downbeat

The classically trained Los Angeles native broadened his musical exposure under the leadership of his Grandfather, Bishop B.J. Crouch where he embraced both gospel and jazz influences. He embarked on his musical career at the age of 15. After his first year of piano lessons his teacher Ms. Lorna Myers thought that perhaps he was not going to catch on and suggested to his mother that he take up art but catch on he did. After a “sonic” epiphany in junior high school, Kenneth’s love for jazz was instantly ignited. Kenneth began his professional career as a musician when he recorded with Tony Haynes at famed percussionist Munyungo Jackson’s recording studio in Los Angeles.
