Two-time GRAMMY® winner Patrick Williams was a highly regarded arranger, educator, and film and television composer. Williams helped create signature sounds for "The Bob Newhart Show," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and "The Streets Of San Francisco," among others. He earned 19 GRAMMY nominations and won two GRAMMY Awards for his arranging—Best Instrumental Arrangement for Threshold for 1974 and Best Arrangement On An Instrumental for Suite Memories for 1986. The music, film, and television communities have lost a celebrated talent. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends, and collaborators during this difficult time.
