New CD: Classically Reminded

The David Rees-Williams Trio comes together to present their second CD recording with Champs Hill Records. This disc, Classically Reminded: Bach, includes arrangements & improvisations on the solo keyboard music of J.S. Bach and Domenico Scarlatti.

“The David Rees-Williams Trio have just got better and better … their new recording of jazz forays into the classical repertoire is just magical.” (Guy Dammann, The Guardian) – “Rees-Williams can cast a Bach prelude in exotic colours, but he and his colleagues are equally at home with Scarlatti, Grieg and Cesar Franck.” (Clive Davis, Sunday Times)
