about

Jazz trumpeter Paul Williamson has established a pattern of producing distinctive recordings that exhibit outstanding ensemble performances and idiosyncratic compositions.

The release of his 8th album, Connect Four, epitomises this approach.

Connect Four features a series of duets with iconic Australian jazz pianists, all of whom Williamson cites an ongoing musical and personal connection with, Tony Gould, Paul Grabowsky, Andrea Keller and Marc Hannaford.

These four pianists provide inspiration for the compositions and the catalyst for the Connect Four project.

Williamson’s strength in producing music that has the ability to take listeners on a musical journey layered with engaging themes, improvised dialogues and the interaction of complementary individual conceptions is demonstrated here to stunning effect. It is music designed to reach beyond jazz formulas, whilst remaining grounded within the diverse traditions of jazz and improvised music.

The distinctive, individual voices and the resulting music on Connect Four is truly mesmerising.



Words by Paul about the opening track with Tony Gould...

"The opening track of the CD, Piece for Peace, features iconic Australian pianist, composer and educator Tony Gould, has many accolades including winner of the prestigious Don Banks Award and an Order of Australia (AM). Whilst Gould’s mentorship and musical inspiration has been ongoing, this recording is the first time we have recorded together. The rapport is evident in the flowing, expressive, and evocative musical dialogue in Piece for Peace."
