Biography

Pamela Williams has lived in Los Angeles since 1989, but it was her native Philadelphia — an artistic hotbed that everyone from John Coltrane to Teddy Pendergrass to the Fresh Prince has called home — that did so much to shape her musical personality. “Philadelphia was a great place to learn music because the city’s music scene was really happening when I was growing up,” the saxophonist recalls. “Philadelphia International Records was big and everyone was recording in Philly — The O’Jays, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The Stylistics, Patti LaBelle and Grover Washington, Jr.”I love this great guy named Nassar Majeed who helped me along the way.


Washington, in fact, was one of her earliest influences. Williams had been listening to soul and R&B religiously since childhood when Mr. Magic’s cutting-edge blend of jazz and R&B ignited a teenage Williams’ interest in jazz. “Grover’s my idol,” says Williams. “He laughs when I tell him that I learned to play the saxophone listening to his records, but it’s true. I’d listen to Mr. Magic or Live at the Bijou and copy his solos. I think that when an artist finds his or her own style, it comes from having so many different influences. I loved everyone from The Crusaders to the Ohio Players.”

    Doce beijo no momento de amar...assim é quando tocamos com alma e paixão... Somos todos amantes de nuances coloridas...assim podemos sentir doces beijos ao sons dos smooths. Muito bom.

    "A Kiss to Remember" makes you want to escape to an island somewhere faraway and forget about the day to day routine. Well done.... Ms. Pamela Williams!

    As a former saxophonist myself. I must say that i was very impressed with Pamelas playing. She has a very unique style, and tone. Which is soothing to the heart and soul. Paul, (Chicago) paullyke80@yahoo.com
