Phoenix is William's most diverse and inventive recording to date. All the songs are original, and feature William playing piano, hammond organ and numerous other instruments including the wine glasses. The styles range from classical to cuban to jazz to reggae. In her review for EnlightenedPiano.com, Pam Asberry said "It made me laugh; it made me cry. Truly, “Phoenix” is one of the most unique and satisfying solo piano albums I have heard in ages, and I give it my highest recommendation." To hear sound clips, click here, here or here.
