On Yasmin Williams’ second lp, the newly released Urban Driftwood the Virginia-based guitarist creates expansive acoustic music. Playing guitar, kalimba, percussion, and kora, she pulls from disparate musical strands—including the smooth jazz she heard growing up—into music that feels spiritually connected to New Age music, Windham Hill guitar, and the work of contemporaries (and collaborators) like William Tyler, Marisa Anderson and Daniel Bachman, who calls her “a guitarist for a new century.”
