With his debut release The Journey Within, Yankee Centerfielder Bernie Williams covers most of the bases. A well versed classical jazz guitarist who has sat in with the likes of Jazz Mandolin Project and has received high praise from Paul McCartney, just maybe the 35 year old Williams can set his eye on a formidable music career after baseball.
Generous mixes of Latin beats laced with various percussion styles are just one highlight of The Journey Within. Soft soulful tracks filled with a variety of horns, make this an enjoyable and relaxing listen. Williams’ serene guitar leads justify the limited vocals, although none of them belong to Williams himself.
