Perhaps the most famous song from the kaleidoscopic film score to the 1971 film Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory starring the great Gene Wilder in the title role. This was the song he sang and it is expertly arranged by Phillip Littlemore as a trombone solo that also captures the imagination of the audience.
The 1971 film musical Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory starred Gene Wilder in the title role. The music was written by composer and actor Anthony Newley, with lyrics provided by Leslie Bricusse, for which it received an Oscar nomination for Original Song Score. There are several well-known songs from the film, but perhaps the most famous is Pure Imagination, which is sung by Willy Wonka as the five children and their parents explore the Chocolate Room in Wonka’s factory. It has been arranged as a trombone solo with a simple, jazz-like accompaniment.
