Described by The London Evening Standard as “the UK’s leading standard-bearer for the super-cool era”, star of the West End’s ‘Rat Pack’ Gary Williams presents his latest album AT THE MOVIES. Celebrating some of Hollywood’s greatest musical moments, from Toy Story to Viva Las Vegas, AT THE MOVIES is the coolest release of the year.

Smooth, Sexy and Very Cool

AT THE MOVIES celebrates five decades of Hollywood classics, including Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Love Actually, Toy Story, Saturday Night Fever and Jungle Book. Dipping into jazz, bossa nova, pop and swing there are four lesser known gems from Elvis Presley movies and original takes on standards from Joni Mitchell, Fred Astaire and The Bee Gees.

Hot on the heals of last year’s Christmas album Big Band Wonderland, AT THE MOVIES features some of the UK’s finest musicians, including British Jazz Award winner Nigel Price (Best Guitarist 2016) and Graeme Blevins (sax); with 16 original arrangements from Phil Steel, Paul Campbell and New York’s Caleb Collins.

More About Gary

Gary made his name as a soloist with big bands and concert orchestras, including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Melbourne Symphony, the BBC Concert Orchestra, Ireland’s RTE and the Lahti Sinfonia Finland. He’s performed for The Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace, the LA Jazz Institute and Ronnie Scott’s. As a broadcaster he’s presented for BBC Radio 2, Jazz FM and The Wireless. Playbill called his book ‘Cabaret Secrets’ “an invauable guide”. He’s recorded 15 albums, including 3 at Abbey Road and a Jazz FM album of the week.

Time Out described his shows as “old school virtuosity” and Oscar winning composer Don Black said, “In a world of Pop Idol mediocrity, Gary Williams shines like a dazzling beacon.”
