Her incredible musicianship is enveloped by the arrangements and production of two-time Grammy winner, Kamau Kenyatta. Drummer Terreon Gully (Dianne Reeves, Stefon Harris and David Sanborn), harmonica player Grégoire Maret (Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny) and Grammy winning trumpeter Curtis Taylor (Gregory Porter and Billy Childs) also help to create an elegant musical environment for Paulette’s one-of-a-kind artistry. “A Woman’s Story” reimagines the music of Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Luther Vandross – all musical partners from Paulette McWilliams’ storied career. Among the other composers she interprets are Janis Ian and Phoebe Snow. Her exquisite and personal reading of their melodies and lyrics is not to be missed…

In 1972 Elvin played and recorded at the world famous Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, CA. Dave Liebman and Steve Grossman played Saxes and Gene Perla played bass along with Elvin on drums. It became an iconic recording in Jazz.
I attended the "Elvin Live at the Lighthouse" every night for 2 weeks and was greatly influenced and by the experience. I decided to do a recording with a similar band to express the inspiration.
We did the recording on Aug. 13, 2017, also live at the Lighthouse, with Doug Webb (ts), Jeff Elwood (ts, ss), Glen Cashman (ts), Chris Colangelo (b), and myself, Paul Kreibich (d).
