Turn Out The Stars
Still We Dream
Blues For A Bass Player
It’s About the Song is the 2014 release by the MJ Williams Trio. The CD is comprised of mostly standards, a Sting song, 2 Monk tunes and an original, Blues for a Bass Player in Paris. This is my composition about Kelly Roberti’s near mortal motorcycle accident some years ago. Kelly lived in Paris for a while and MJ wrote the lyrics about that city.

The Tappan/Roberti Quartet consists of four of the finest jazz players anywhere. Their sound is the 'state of the art' jazz that international audiences cherish and yearn for.
Dancing to the Edge is a recording that seems to reveal layers, not only with each listening but also in the single span of its nine selections. One of the pleasures of the CD is that it is neither self-conscious nor self-referential.
Kelly and Ann seem to enter each others breathing cycle while never losing MJ’s lyrical countenance. All three reach a profound connection.
