The jazz singer Natalie Williams is the daughter of poet John Hartley Williams. They have performed jazz and poetry events together in the
and in Berlin.
One Sunday a month Natalie holds a monthly rave-up at Ronnie Scott’s club in London, called Soul
Family. Otherwise she is often to be heard fronting the brilliant Ronnie Scott
house band (extraordinary James Pearson on piano) and the latest news is that
they have just put out a CD called Jazz Classics (it’s on the Ronnie Scott
label). There is more vigour and kick in these live performances than you’ll
hear almost anywhere else these days. Check it out!
