After the chart-topping success of her Heads Up International debut Saxtress, world renown saxophonist Pamela Williams follows up with yet another "sure thing" on her Enchanced CD release Eight Days of Ecstasy (HUCD 3043).
Featuring guest appearances by Gerald Albright, vocalists Debra Laws and 2nd Nature, Eight Days of Ecstasy is poised to follow in the footsteps of Pamela’s unprecedented accomplishments on her debut release Saxtress, which spent over five months on the Billboard charts and earned her the honors of being named the #1 New Female Contemporary Jazz artist of 1996.
"Seven is a magical number both spiritually and artistically, like the seven colors in a rainbow and the seven notes in a musical scale. Eight is a number of completion--a perfect union, a perfect octave," shares Pamela on the subject of the title of her new release. "Some people have ecstatic relationships that may only last a few days. Also, the number eight mysteriously surrounds me."
Also an Enchanced CD, Eight Days of Ecstasy takes the listener/viewer on a narrated journey through Pamela’s "private galleries", sharing a variety of personal glimpses into the artist’s world. The Enhanced CD also features a biography and live video footage of Pamela as well as videos and information on other Heads Up recording artists. The CD can be viewed via a CD-ROM drive on either a PC or Mac-based computer.
Eight Days of Ecstasy is sure to appeal to both the NAC and Urban AC listeners, as did its predecessor. And Pamela is hoping to reach an even broader audience with this new record by touring extensively when the record is released. "It’s really a joy to perform live," says Williams. "I want to travel throughout the United States as well as internationally and visit as many cities as will have us!"
