Amram testifies, "Morley is one of the outstanding voices of her generation, as a singer, songwriter and bandleader she’s in a class of her own, transcends all categories and is making a major contribution to contemporary music."
Morley says, "He's a master! The session was an education. He talked about working with Dizzy Gillespie and Jack Kerouac during the breaks, it is always an honor to be in his presence, it reminds me of why I am blessed to make music."
World Music icons Hamid Drake (drums; Herbie Hancock, John Zorn) and William Parker (upright bass; DJ Spooky, Zorn) also appear on "I Will Stay."
Morley — the New Yorker singer and composer whom the New York Times said, "embodies modern-day New York femininity in all its multicultural finesse." — will release her uplifting, genre-mixing new album, Undivided, on April 3, which also marks her debut as solo producer. She is joined on the album by a stellar cast of musicians including Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman), Raúl Midón, Dave Eggar, and Amram.
