5.0 out of 5 stars Deep emotions 23 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Jessica Williams is an "underrated" pianist: this means that she can doing what she wants, and few people will listen to it, but it doesn't matter, every sound from her piano is marvellous. This time, Williams returns to trio format, and she has selected some John Coltrane songs along with her own compositions in a similar vein. The final result is an intimist record, where Jessica mixes strenght with obscurity, sentiment with anger... Simply, she is Coltrane in this record. Really, one of the best releases from this year.

Note: I think that in the four track, "Paul's Pal", the mastering has a little mistake (it seems a digital interference, more obvious in the las part of the track and in the beginning, when Jessica Williams plays alone a pair of chords). However, it is only evident if you put the CD at very high volume. The rest of the music compensates this detail...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Portrait of A Musical Saint 7 April 2011
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The two musical poles for Jessica Williams have been the quirkiness, independence, and spunk of Thelonious Monk and the spiritual drive of John Coltrane. She has recorded homages to both before, and in this new album, as a trio, she once again allows Coltrane to guide her path. Three of the eight tracks are her own compositions, which regard Coltrane as seeker of the cosmic mystery and musical commentator of the Civil Rights Movement. Freedom Trane (great pun) has some of the flavor of The Quartet, particularly McCoy Tyner's dense piano style. For comparisons, Coltrane's Lonnie's Lament was already presented in her 2009 solo album, The Art of the Piano, which was longer and more developed than this 2007 recording. Paul's Pal is a new intrepretation from her different trio session, Live at Yoshi's, Volume Two, and Naima was examined in her much earlier recording, Jessica Williams Plays for Lovers. She has performed with Dave Captein, bass, and Mel Brown, drums, before [e.g., Some Ballads, Some Blues]; they provide the proper balance and rhythmic support for these tunes. They stretch out in Williams' "Just Words", among the better tracks, and who does not like Naima? Here, the trio make it shimmer with tremolo, William's trademark arpeggio phrasing, and cymbal work. It is simply lovely and majestic. The album closes with Coltrane's compassionate and peaceful Welcome, bringing the flickering light into full radiance. Sometimes I prefer Jessica Williams' solo sojourns; other times, as in this portrait of Coltrane, the trio is more appropriate. This is very fine, satisfying album.
