Recorded live onboard Royal Caribbean's Splendour of the Seas, 'Live In Brazil' is the newest and most exciting album yet from 'Rat Pack' star Gary Williams.

There are Spanish hits including a medley of Gipsy Kings classics; Brazilian favourites including songs by Roberto Carlos and Tom Jobim; and Sinatra's biggest crowd-pleasers My Way and New York, New York.

There are a few surprises too with brilliant tributes to Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue, both in the big band style. You'll even find songs in German and Japanese.

Explaining why this album means so much to him Gary said, “For as long as I can remember I've had a love affair with Brazil. I love the people, the weather, the food and of course, the music. When Royal Caribbean offered me the chance to headline for two Brazilian seasons, I jumped at the chance.”

In 8 months the show was seen by over 20,000 Brazilians and judging by their reaction, it's obvious Gary loved every minute of his time on stage. 'Live in Brazil' is a great addition to Gary's other albums and captures the energy and fun of his live shows.

28/06/2013 Clive Fuller, Encore Magazine

This is the new Gary Williams CD which comes hot on the heels of his book Cabaret Secrets (cabaretsecrets.com). Gary has been entertaining audiences both in this country and abroad not to mention on the ocean waves for many years. You may have seen Gary singing songs from the 20th Century songbook including many associated with Frank Sinatra but this CD offers much more…

It is evident from the opening medley of The Coffee Song & Brazil that Gary does indeed have a musical affinity with Brazil. This wonderful “live” album was recorded in Febraury 2013 during his headlining season aboard the Splendour of the Seas.

This is indeed the current flavour of Gary Williams singing as he performs many of his favourite Brazilian songs and South America themes plus some surprises and classics of the songbook too. You can hear that the audience are taken along with this theme and the chat is aplenty. The format of the CD is such that the chat segments have their own track numbers allowing for just the musical numbers to be be played if that is your wish.

Gary comes across as enthusiastic and reactive throughout this 62 minute, 22 track, master class in entertaining an audience. It is always difficult to transfer a “live” performance to an album as the contact between performer and audience is so much a part of the success of the show. This album brings with it all the atmosphere of a modern cabaret/stage show. Gary is in fine voice throughout and is backed by a really lively orchestra led by musical director & pianist/keyboards Jack Borkofski.

The modern day medley selections include a Gipsy Kings medley; a Lady Gaga swing medley and the Kylie Minogue shuffle. All time favourites include My Way; L.O.V.E.; When I Fall in Love & What a Wonderful World. These along with the Brazilian themed songs and plenty of other familiar songs make for a special musical journey.
