"Claude Williamson has the kind of finely-drawn sensitivity which gives him a sure and incisive awareness of the emotions of those around him. His stability, in the face of this awareness, is a characteristic which deserves applause. Williamson's soft spoken, unassuming manner, too, is deserving of applause, for it makes friends of musicians and non-musicians alike. The young pianist's life is a serious devotion to jazz -a vigorous, hard-working devotion- which can only result in flawness achievements."
- Stan Kenton, 1955
