“Garland’s saxophone playing a joy”
One of the UK's leading jazz musicians, the Multi award-winning saxophonist Tim Garland has, over the last 25 years, garnered a formidable international reputation not only as a jazz improviser of fluency, power and grace but also as a composer and arranger of remarkable clarity and breadth. Tim formed his first group in 1990, however it was in the late 90's when he was asked by the iconic US pianist Chick Corea to join his band, an association that lasts to this day, that Tim really cemented his reputation as a world-class performer. As well as work with Chick he also spent over four years with Bill Bruford’s Earthworks and has been an important force with groups such as Storms/Nocturnes, Acoustic Triangle and his own award winning Lighthouse Project. Voted "Musician of the Year" in the 2006 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, as a composer he was also by that time getting commissions from the likes of the LSO, BBC Concert Orchestra and The Royal Northern Sinfonia. In 2009 he won a Grammy for his part in creating Chick Corea's "The New Crystal Silence" and for almost 10 years he was composer-in-residence at Newcastle University’s International Centre for Music Studies. For this 606 performance brings his ‘ONE’ band to the Club, whose 2016 self-titled recording was Jazzwise Album of the Year. Featuring Jason Rebello on keyboards, Ant Law on electric and acoustic guitars and Asaf Sirkis on drums, ‘One’ explores many of the influences that have guided Tim throughout his career, including jazz rock (his Canterbury roots), Celtic guitar music, Latin & Spanish inflections from his work with Chick and saxophone styles from both sides of the Atlantic. This is a world-class band playing music at the highest level and not to be missed.
