Taste of Sherry
You're about to hear a lady in the tradition of the best we've ever had...Lady Day, Sarah and Ella. Sherry Williams is the incomparable present-day combination of those ladies. But Sherry offers so much of herself! In a perfect mix of standard items like 'Let's Fall In Love', 'Foggy Day' and 'Summertime', Sherry introduces ''Tis Better to Have Loved and Lost', and Weren't You the One?' And yet, the important things are her sensitive interpretations and her soulful delivery of all the music and all the words! And...She's backed by the superb, tasteful arranger-pianist, John Rodby, bassist Harvey Newmark, and drummers Harold Mason and Mark Stevens. They are one with Ms. Williams and what a treat that is! Sherry makes familiar pieces her own. 'Round Midnight' and 'Lush Life' stripped of the extraneous, performed with only Al Viola's guitar, and the above mentioned standards...They all belong to Sherry Williams. And that's what makes this very touching collection so memorable. Give her your listening space, and the lady will fill it with her magic.
