The legendary American Joe Williams is considered one of the great swingers and blues shouters. Bill Ramsey, the popular Jazz singer and entertainer, was a friend of the vocalist who passed away in 1999. The two singers cultivated a friendship for decades. Ramsey stands out on this tribute CD with the obvious ease of his jazz singing which reveals much of the intimate knowledge of Williams's style. Arranger Jörg Achim Keller has contributed thrilling new arrangements which are performed with great verve by the hr-Bigband - a single celebration of joie de vivre, the joy of playing, technical perfection and physical elation.

Joe Williams was Bill Ramsey’s great role model, and he became one of his best friends from 1981 onwards. They talked to each other a great deal – about music and life – and felt a mutual bond as if they were part of the same family. That special American quality was so important for this project (besides the language of course), that certain ability to keep simple things simple without any effort, to hit those rich notes with an assurance that spares the listener any thoughts of interpreting a hidden meaning, or considering problems of intonation and vibrato.

The arrangements by Jörg Achim Keller for the hr-Bigband are in the style of Count Basie: punchy and precise, presented with inimitable rhythmic verve, while also incorporating the compositional finesse of later big band developments.

A  small print of this CD album was originally released to celebrate Bill Ramsey’s 75th birthday in 2006. Ten year’s later, Bear Family released Bill Ramsey’s ’My Words’, a double CD to commemorate his 85th birthday. This set was so well received that we dediced to make ’Here’s To Life – Here’s To Joe’, a classic from Bill Ramsey’s jazz catalog, available again to a larger audience.  Sit back, relax, swing and enjoy!
