Tim Green took his first formal piano lessons at the age of 19 while attending Eastern
Illinois University (from where he graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy). Within a few
years, he began performing in jazz groups around Central Illinois, while living in
Champaign. During that time, he met and performed with a variety of touring jazz
artists who encouraged him to move to Chicago and explore all it has to offer.
In 2000, he did move to Chicago, a city whose cultural depth enables one to be
surrounded by many of the world's best living jazz artists and have countless
opportunities to learn and grow from them.
Within a few months of moving to the Windy City, Tim received a call from tenor
saxophone legend Von Freeman to play in Von's quartet.
Tim has worked as a sideman in many notable groups in and around Chicago
