Project 01

David Rees-Williams Trio

‘Jacques Loussier may have done it first but David Rees-Williams does it better’ Music Week

When you’re invited to appear at the famous Kennedy Centre, Washington DC (2010) you know you’ve arrived on the scene. David’s music is classically inspired with a jazz influence but melody is always there. Works by recognised and lesser known composers combine in a unique programme that stimulates even the diehards.

The entire repertoire is presented with uncanny authenticity - Sing, Sing, Sing, I’ve got Rhythm, One O’clock Jump, Don’t be that Way etc.

That unique programme is still fresh today and is played unamplified to rapturous audiences.

Best known for his interpretation of Bach’s Air on a G String and his gold album Play Bach Trio, Jacques was the innovator of the classical-jazz crossover style where he has been at the forefront for over 50 years.

The classical-jazz debate continues but audiences at a Loussier concert are amazed at the cohesion of three musicians introducing new life to standard works.

About Artistes Personal Management

About

After six years as a pro trumpet player, eight years as a director at the Robert Stigwood Organisation, managing hit groups The Marbles and Atomic Rooster, representing two Eurovision song winners and arranging concerts with stars like Alison Moyet, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, The Hollies, Cream, The Foundations, The Who, Artie Shaw, Buddy Greco and The Rat Pack, I have returned to my musical roots and concentrated on jazz and jazz related music.

The artistes represented are all first rate professional attractions, each with a distinctive musical direction guaranteed to stimulate audiences.

I’m also currently developing two innovative TV programmes and will reveal details later.


History of APM

As much or as little as you like to build credibility. Maybe three or four short paragraphs. An old photo of you and the band would be nice.

This section can be a "click to read more" type section if there is a lot of text to keep the length of the page short if people don't want to read everything.

“This short paragraph is optional. I would maybe put some kind of a testimonial from somebody who carries weight and credibility. Some powerful feedback that somebody is willing to write for you. I would recommend somebody that everything has heard of in some capacity, whether it's the person themselves or the organisation they work for” John Smith, company/organisation
