Pamela Williams

Pamela Williams: Dubbed “the Saxtress” after the title of her debut record, Pamela Williams is undoubtedly, one of the most popular performers on today’s smooth jazz scene.However, we’ve long preferred to refer to Ms Williams affectionately as the first lady of sax!! Although she established her career in LA, Williams' molded her musical identity during her youth. Her talents were nurtured by the rich musical heritage of Philadelphia.One of her earliest influences was the late great Grover Washington Jr. whose cutting-edge blend of styles first inspired Williams with an interest in jazz. Pamela tours the world electrfying audiences with her dynamic sound and captivating stage presence. … A multi-talented artist who plays flute as well as a little piano, Williams made her solo debut in 1996 with The Saxtress, an album that immediately brought her name into the limelight.The project peaked within the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Album top 10 and remained on the chart for full five months while also earning her the title of Best Female Contemporary Jazz Artist of 1996.On that release and on each of her subsequent projects, Williams has continued to exhibit a stylish blend of flavors, from Latin & jazz, to R&B, hip-hop and house.In 1998, Pamela released Eight Days Of Ecstasy on Heads Up Records. In 2002, Williams switched labels, releasing just a one project on Fome Records that barely missed top 20 status.From that album, she recorded a tune written by Gerald Albright called A Song for Pam.

With a move over to Shanachie Entertainment in 2003, Pam began to hit new heights! The Perfect Love hit #5 on Billboard while the 2005 Sweet Saxations CD reached #4. In 2006, Pamela recorded her 6th CD, Elixir, a release that proved to be Williams' highest placing project to this point in her career as it reached the #3 position .In 2007 Pam recorded her seventh cd, The Look of Love, a collection celebrating the music of Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick, & Hal David.
