Tim Green

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
