RESONATOR ONE LIT­TLE IN­DIAN, OUT 18 NOVEMBER

Strong-willed folkie goes full jazz on 13th al­bum. Any­one bet­ting on where one-time folk singer and oc­ca­sional chil­dren’s song­writer Wil­liams’s ca­reer might go next would have got long odds on an al­bum of jazz stan­dards ac­com­pa­nied by vi­bra­phone player An­thony Kerr. The idea be­hind Resonator was to strip down songs that have been plumped and pol­ished over the years through myr­iad ver­sions. The track­list – which in­cludes Stormy Weather, My Funny Valen­tine, Ev­ery Time We Say Good­bye and The Man I Love – is bul­let-proof, songs so strong they could sur­vive any treat­ment, but Kerr’s gen­tle ar­range­ments al­low Wil­liams’s won­der of a voice to shine like never be­fore.
