Tim Warfield: Inspire Me!

Read "Inspire Me!" reviewed by

Saxophonist Tim Warfield has a lot of irons in the fire. While serving as “artist-in-residence" at Messiah College, attending to his duties as an adjunct faculty member at Temple University, appearing live under his own name and working with high profile artists like trumpeter Terell Stafford, he also found time to deliver three albums in an eleven month span--Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas (Self Produced, 2012), Eye Of The Beholder (Criss Cross, 2013) and the record under discussion here; if that's not musical multi-tasking, nothing is. Warfield--a once-upon-a-time “young lion" and finalist in the 1991 Thelonious Monk International ...

Harmonie Ensemble / New York, Steven Richman Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn / Piotr Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suites Harmonia Mundi 2013 Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn / Piotr Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suites highlights the greatest jazz adaptation of classical music.

Tim Warfield: Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas

Read "Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas" reviewed by

Veteran saxophonist Tim Warfield delivers one of the finest modern Christmas jazz albums around on Jazzy Christmas. Performing a selection of familiar songs with a heavy contemporary flavor, the music is so straight-ahead in nature that such seasonal tunes like “Let It Snow," “Joy To The World," and “Silent Night," are almost unrecognizable as Christmas music and could easily be part of any playlist throughout the year. The arrangements take advantage of Warfield's star-studded cast, including trumpeter Terell Stafford, pianist Cyrus Chestnut and vibraphonist Stefon Harris.Assuring its uniqueness as a holiday album, Warfield's renditions of some of these ...

Tim Warfield and the Shirley Scott Tribute Band Jazz Night at the MichenerThe Michener Museum Doylestown, PA May 21, 2011 Tim Warfield is a saxophonist who came up in the Philly jazz scene and is now frequently heard on recordings as leader and sideman, performing in many venues around the country.

Tim Warfield: Jazz Is...

Read "Jazz Is..." reviewed by

Although it exists solely for the purposes of recordings and the occasional live gig, Tim Warfield’s quintet (Warfield- tenor saxophone; Nicholas Payton- trumpet; Cyrus Chestnut- piano; Tarus Mateen- bass; Clarence Penn- drums) has been a marvel to hear over the course of four albums dating back to the critically acclaimed A Cool Blue from 1995. They say the highest compliment that can be paid a jazz artist is the attainment of an individual voice, and in this regard Warfield stands head and shoulders above many of his peers. With a breathy and soulful timbre, his tenor voice is immediately identifiable; ...
