ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Like the fabric, Raw Silk is a natural and dimpled first effort introducing jazz vocalist, Patricia Adams, accompanied by Frank Wilkins on piano. Fifteen tunes fill these fifty-eight minutes of jazz and blues standards from renaissance Harlem and Tin Pan Alley.

"Ms. Adams brings to the stage a level of excitement, which she gives to her audiences freely and unselfishly. Her band members are versatile and extraordinary players, who have performed with many of the jazz legends. Patricia's personable demeanor is a part of her show. She goes into her own zone and feels the groove of each instrument and pours it all out in song."- Barbara Jonson, UNITY FIRST .

Duke Ellington's familiar "Prelude To A Kiss" and "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart" contrast his "Day Dream". Rube Bloom's "Can't Face The Music Without Singin' The Blues" and Curtis Lewis' "All Night Long" balance the well-known "Takin' A Chance On Love" and "Our Love is Here To Stay". Adams added lyrics to "That Sunday" by George Weiss & Joe Sherman, and wrote the lyrics to "I Want You To Remember", composed by Allan Mueller.

BUZZ !!!
"The classy song stylist who interprets the music and makes each song her own, has a warm and dignified stage presence and a presentation that is quite joyous, though not extravagant."- T. Brooks Shepherd, Jazz Columnist

"Mr. Wilkins' gorgeous playing on Misty literally leaves the crowd gasping!" Eric Jackson, WGBH-FM.
