Pearl Williams embodies, embraces and perpetuates the legacy of legendary Philadelphia jazz singers. Gaining early experience singing in her high school choir, she quickly graduated to Jazz by way of a group formed by McCoy Tyner, a neighbor and friend. Her association with that future star helped shape her style, which is described as warm and sensually sophisticated, with an instinctive feeling for rhythm and lyrics, and deep emotional characteristics. While she certainly has her influences, what comes out is singular and, quite simply, inimitable. Despite having no formal training, Pearl Williams' three decades- plus career has taken her all over the globe, performing with certifiable, international jazz legends such as Houston Person, Count Basie, Barry Harris, Bobby Durham, Al Grey, Shirley Scott, Trudy Pitts, Milt Buckner, Cat Anderson, Philly Joe Jones, Richard "Groove" Holmes and literally hundreds of others. Artists like Pearl Williams, a living legend, are just not made any longer, and her every appearance is a unique and very special event.

Jazz Bridge is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to assisting area Jazz and blues musicians in need. Their Jazz Bridge in Media program is one in a series at this venue, along with four other area locales. For more details, visit Jazz Bridge.

Pearl Williams is available for interviews: please call 610-745-3011 to arrange.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
