What I See explores life-changing moments as told through a diverse array of material, including affecting movie themes, rarely heard jazz gems, and inventive interpretations of King Pleasure, Benny Carter, Rickie Lee Jones, Richie Havens, Carlos Lyra and Joyce Moreno.
“Though Judy Wexler’s reputation as one of the West Coast’s most compelling vocalists was cemented some time ago, What I See, her fourth release, suggests a heightened maturity, an even greater sense of assured imagination. Much like Abbey Lincoln—and at this point in Wexler’s musical progress, the comparison is quite valid—her skills as an actress are skillfully exercised, adding vivid shadings to her interpretations.”
“Judy Wexler is more than a mere singer of songs. She’s an actress, mood painter, song
archaeologist, and vocalist par excellence. What I See is a marvel of sincerity and beauty.”

“Wexler deserves comparison with the very best jazz singers working today.”
