Imagine the scene – low lighting, comfortable airchair/settee, favourite drinks with friends of like musical tastes and @In the Lunge with Gary Williams and his musicians’. Sounds good to this receiver! Gary, for this CD, has chosen a range of classics by world-class tune and songsmiths and selected a group of first-class musicians, who react superbly to each song to record what evolves in to an intimate private concert.
Who could ask for more from a singer whose skills have grown as his mastery of the genre has increased immeasurably over the last few years?
All praise to the composers, lyricists, arrangers, musicians, conductor and production team – all of whom have pulled out the stops in this endeavour. To name names (all are on the sleeve notes) would give the false impression that one or other was more important. Not so! A truly classic mix from a highly talented team.
