Tim Garland is widely known as one of the UKs most successful musical exports working in jazz. Much of his output reflects interests beyond conventional jazz boundaries and he is increasingly acknowledged for large ensemble writing including many orchestral pieces, works for chamber ensembles, choirs, and of course many commissions from jazz ensembles of all kinds. He first made international waves playing saxophone, bass clarinet and flute with Chick Corea, an ongoing collaboration today. He also was featured with Bill Brufords Earthworks for over four years and has an ongoing commitment with two award winning ensembles: The Lighthouse Project, and Acoustic Triangle

Tim Garland: ReFocus

Read "ReFocus" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Strings and Tim Garland have always resonated well together. A leading figure of British jazz since the early 2000s, Garland emerged from a classical background, having studied classical composition at the Guildhall School of Music. His dual idioms have converged persuasively on albums such as If The Sea Replied (Sirocco Music Limited, 2005), Libra (Global Mix, ...

It was 2011's Titanic for a Bike (Caligola), however, that marked Goloubev's last recording as outright leader.

Pat Metheny: From This Place

Read "From This Place" reviewed by John Kelman

Wild Card: Beast From The East

Read "Beast From The East" reviewed by Chris May

The impact of Jimmy Smith's organ trio in the mid 1950s was by all accounts massive. Nothing quite like it had been heard before in popular music.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
