Alyson Williams

Summer Nights in Harlem

Enjoy Harlem's First Lady of Jazz Alyson Williams as she explores her jazz roots and takes you on an exhilarating ride called "Summer Nights in Harlem”. Producer & Songwriter Maurice Lynch joins a cavalcade of musicians; Maestro Ray Chew, The Grammy Award Winning Christian McBride Trio with Christian McBride, Christian Sands and Ulysses Owens Jr. Also featuring Kirk Whalum, Ron Blake and “King” Solomon Hicks. These classic and historical recordings should be a part of every Jazz Lovers library

Discovering a talent as imposing, magnetic, and vocally unflawed as that of Alyson Williams prompts both exhilaration and comfort in me.

With many new jazz artists on the scene today, Alyson’s classic vocals give jazz a sense of importance and life.

Alyson has my endless support, friendship and mentorship.

I hope my career and legacy inspire her to greatness and that my belief in her lends credibility to her artistry and talent.

My desire is that my voice be a link - a chain of influence - like one singer passing the torch off to another with a spark of inspiration passed forward like a baton.
