Mercury-nominated and critically acclaimed folk artist Kathryn Williams returns to Band on the Wall to perform work from her forthcoming album ‘Resonator’. Alongside revered jazz musician and vibraphone player Anthony Kerr, Williams creates a complete re-imagining of classic jazz standards.
‘Resonator’ strips away the bombast of previous versions of much loved songs such as “My Funny Valentine” and “Stormy Weather”, leaving them exposed and yearning – exuding a dream-like and hypnotic luminosity. The intent was to ‘reclaim’ these wonderful songs that have seen multiple cover versions over the years, and rearrange them, bringing them back to their most rudimentary state. Rebuilding them to make fresh of what has been heard so much. Kathryn and Anthony have revealed true beauty in these old songs, with their fragile delivery both vocally and instrumentally; Williams’ signature vocals enriched by soft, lush vibraphones, distant jazz trumpet and double bass.
