Tin Men and the Telephone

Tin Men and the Telephone (TM&T) will not stand for banality. Their shows – that challenge the gut as much as the brain - undermine the monotony and irritation of everyday life by recycling anything from the bleeping of nuisance devices, to the screeching of overzealous football commentators. Rather than relying upon the jazz standard as plaything, they find melody in the flirtations of a TV porn-star or the moos of an unwitting cow, pushing the boundaries of improvisation and the communicative power of music itself. The Tin Men trio is a dynamic affair, drawing on the harmonic depth of contemporary classical music and modern jazz as much as the visceral rhythms of hip-hop and Balkan music

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
