Suzy Williams

At eighteen years old, Suzy met “Stormin’ Norman” Zamcheck, a Yale graduate in literature and “damn good boogie woogie piano player”. Partnering with Stormin' Norman, she cut two albums with him (Fantasy Rag, 1975 and Ocean of Love, 1978) and toured the east coast for 12 years. In 1976, the great jazz pianist and composer Eubie Blake paid Suzy an inspiring compliment in the form of a handwritten letter, “I heard alot of white women try to imitate negroid singing, but you are the only one who has it down pat.” In Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Suzy married Bill Burnett in 1977. After ten years of marriage, they decided to form “The Boners”. Bill, who wrote a song that is in Bette Midler’s new Las Vegas show, has a great knack for harmony arrangements.
