Album information

Shock! sees Wales' top jazz pianist deliver a selection of funky originals. From melancholy ballads to biting funk, the Power Trio bring a powerful focus and lyrical power to all that they play.

Gareth Williams is an artist who commands huge respect and warmth throughout the UK jazz community.  Shock!, the debut album with the Gareth Williams Power Trio, showcases Williams’ skills as an outstanding composer, pianist and improviser.

Shock! sees the Gareth Williams Power Trio deliver a selection of hard-hitting originals. From melancholy ballads to biting funk, the world-class trio bring a powerful focus and lyrical power to all that they play. London-based jazz pianist Gareth Williams has written all but one of the album's tracks (the exception being a cracking new version of John Coltrane's ‘Giant Steps') and his playing exudes power, sensitivity and a poignant lyricism.

Drawing on a range of influences Williams' compositions range from the elegant ‘Evans the Piano', to the elegiac ‘For Hedd Wyn, Alun Lewis and the Others', the intense modern jazz of ‘Seven Leaves', the lop-sided modernity of ‘Some In' and the crisp funk of ‘Keeping Up With Our Jones's', making this Williams' most complete statement to date.
