In the two short years since he's resettled in Munich from New York, after a short stay in Salzburg, Collins has learned German, landed teaching jobs at the Bavarian International School and the New Jazz School of Munich, released Castles and Hilltops, and taken his place alongside Matthias Bublath, Martin Scales, Ulrich Wangenheim, Tom Reinbrecht, and Christoph Holzhauser as a driving force on the Munich jazz scene.
Alan Bryson spoke with Collins about Castles and Hilltops, the European scene and the evolution of his career, working with artists including Charlie Hunter, Ingrid Jensen and Aaron Parks. Read about all this and more in Alan's in-depth interview, Tim Collins: Mixing It Up, published today at All About Jazz.
