RELEASE DATE: 19th September 2019

Leslie Bricusse, the writer behind Feeling Good and Goldfinger, has described the latest album from Gary Williams as a “rare phenomenon” and told Michael Bublé to “watch out”. 

Williams first met Bricusse at a celebrity party last year. “My songwriting partner, Jon Nickoll, and I have been fans of his for as long as I can remember,” says Gary, “so I couldn’t resist introducing myself when I had the chance. I told him I was writing songs for a new album and he asked me to send him an early draft.” The legendary writer was impressed, telling Gary, “There is a dreamy, easy-going timelessness about the songs, shades of Rodgers and Hart one minute, Antonio Carlos Jobim the next. Songs like these make you want the ghosts of Mel Torme and Matt Monro to come back and sing them. Until they do, Gary Williams is their worthy guardian.”

Reviews

“The songs that he has written with Jon Nickoll are definitely in the style of those classic tunes, and the lyrics are nicely crafted in the same tradition, but with a somewhat more contemporary feeling.” Jersey Jazz, USA

“…why did I constantly play this album on repeat for about three hours? …it may have something to do with the silky-smooth tones of Gary Williams’ voice rendering songs I had never heard before but I am sure I will be hearing a lot more of in the near future.” Nick Wakeman, Musical Theatre Review

“This album is of outstanding excellence…” Michael Ferber Jazz
