New albums from Gary Williams featuring the music of Frank Sinatra and a compilation from Abbey Road

Gary first came to public attention when he appeared with the BBC Big Band on television paying tribute to Vic Damone. Since then he has become a favourite performer and broadcaster with leading big bands and concert orchestras including the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, the Hallé, Royal Scottish National, City of Birmingham Symphony, the Melbourne Symphony, Adelaide Symphony, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Ireland’s RTE orchestra. He is a regular guest of the BBC Concert Orchestra for Friday Night Is Music Night and had the honour of performing for The Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace. As a headline act on the world’s luxury cruise liners he has visited over 50 countries. Other work includes 150 performances as Sinatra in the West End’s ‘The Rat Pack’, The Magic of Bacharach, The Legend of Sinatra (with David Jacobs), Channel 5’s Open House working alongside Donny Osmond and Burt Bacharach and BBC1’s ‘Doctor Who Christmas Special’.

After weeks in the studio, I am delighted to announce two new albums due for release in March.The Sinatra album is with Chris Dean and his orchestra, featuring a full big band throughout and strings on many tracks. It is in fact my first big band album. I’ve tried to focus on the classics without resorting to the most obvious choices. There are some stunning arrangements and particular favourites include All or Nothing At All, Brazil, They All Laughed, Please Be Kind and Where or When.
The second album is a compilation of the last three CDs recorded at Abbey Road, aptly named “Gary Williams – The Best of Abbey Road. Both should be released late March and be available by post Dress Circle and online from iTunes and all the other download sites.

“Michael Bublé isn’t the only person keeping the Sinatra flame alive.” Clive Davis for The Sunday Times
“Every song he sang was word and note perfect and confirmed the belief of many in his audience, now surely his “fans”, that he is the best young singer of the Sinatra era of melodies in the country, if not the world… his presentation of all of these well-loved classics was performed with a panache which would have pleased ‘The Guv’nor’ himself.” Perfectly Frank Magazine
