New Release

Miles Music are delighted to announce the forthcoming release of a new CD from Gareth Williams.

Gareth and his trio are playing at Ronnie Scott’s on the 13th June 2022 https://www.ronniescotts.co.uk/performances/view/7433-gareth-williams-trio-short-stories and this seemed exactly the right occasion to launch this recording of Gareth with Martin France on drums, and Palle Danielsson sharing duties on bass with Chris Laurence.
This recording is, as Gareth writes in his notes ‘…a significant departure from my other CDs.’  Ten original tunes with the trio and two standards from Gareth explore a range of music that venture beyond jazz idioms and as John Fordham states in his sleeve for the album, ‘… this beautifully played and emotionally open album, represent a step-change for Gareth Williams, the polymathic Welsh pianist, guitarist and composer who leads it. True to its title, ‘Short Stories’ unveils succinctly vivid glimpses of what musics of many kinds, within the jazz loop and outside it, have meant to this modestly masterly artist over a lifetime of close listening as well as dazzling performance…’

The CD will be available from Miles Music from the 14th June 2022.
