”The excellent pianist acquits himself well on his debut CD, shrewdly displaying the many sides of his work. His lush and lyric solo on “The High & the Mighty,” his unusually hard swinging version of “Willow Weep for Me” and his thoroughly idiomatic treatment of Horace Silver's “Juicy Lucy” stand out in an album without a weak track.” Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

“...you ignore the fine details--the interplay of light and dark, the unusual angles, the narrative contours--at your risk. Williams never fails to surprise and tickle.” - Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader

“Examining classics with keen understanding, he decorates themes in subtly iridescent emotional shades that never include mawkishness.” Frank John Hadley, Downbeat Magazine
