Thelonious Monk is alive and well and living in Santa Cruz, CA, as a 60 year old white woman named Jessica Jennifer Williams. If there's a better post-bop piano player playing today, I'll eat my CD collection, disk by disk.

Ms Williams is the real deal: A player blessed with a natural sense of rhythm and swing, balanced with HUGE technique achieved through decades of practice, mixed with a playful inventiveness - and all of it driven by GENIUS.

There's no better introduction to Ms Williams' music than to meet her live and solo. And of her many live, solo albums, "Live at Maybeck Recital Hall," is the best. Check out her renditions of "Why Do I Love You?" and "Nice Work if You Can Get It" - or her homage to Bill Evans, "I Remember Bill." If you like solo jazz piano, it doesn't get any better than this.

As for the sonics, Concord Records' series of live solo piano recordings at Maybeck Hall, (Ms Williams' album is the 21st), are close to perfect. I swear, listening to Ms Williams' album is almost like being there - and I ought to know, because I was.

Format: Audio CD
Jessica Williams is a very talented pianist with an impressive technique. She plays fast passages with clear articulation so that one hears every note of a fast cadenza-like flourish. Also, her arrangements of well-known tunes are often fun, funky, and certainly different. My complaint with her playing is too often she has an aggressive habit of "thumping" the piano in a very unmusical way. For example, the first piece--track 2--"Why Do I Love You?" includes loud single notes that suggests to me that she is angry at someone or something. I find this type of sudden, out-of-context accent to be distracting and quite unmusical. As a musician myself I expect the music to flow whether it is fast, slow, or moderate in tempo. I wish she would drop this habit because otherwise she is a stunning performer. Perhaps the problem is not so obvious in a live performance, which this CD does capture. With the microphone so close to the piano, it may emphasize this type of dynamics. Regardless of the reason, it makes the recorded experience varied in quality.
