Shock! - Gareth Williams Power Trio - Hi-Fi News

Not so shocking really, but a striking debut from a pianist known for his work with Claire Martin. Bassist Laurence Cottle and drummer lan Thomas are equal partners in a close-knit, committed trio, and the funky title track sees Williams really let fly on electric piano. By contrast,'Evans The Piano' reveals a subtle harmonic sense, even if Williams is brusquer than Bill, while the effective 'Seven Leaves' is more sprightly than autumnal. Refreshing, no-nonsense pianism, bursting with ideas.
