This December, Tim Garland launches his “Winter Encounters
”—a series of unique trio performances, beautifully filmed and streamed from Oak Gable Studios.
Each 45-minute set features a unique collaboration of world-class musicians followed by a live Q&A session with the artists, starting with Kit Downes
& Norma Winstone
on December 6th.
Over the last 30 years, British saxophonist Tim Garland has forged a reputation as a highly distinctive and in-demand musician and composer. His vast CV includes world tours with Chick Corea
, large-scale orchestral commissions, a Grammy Award and his own award-winning jazz projects featuring the likes of Joe Locke
, Geoffrey Keezer
, Gwilym Simcock
and Asaf Sirkis
Whilst often inspired by influences from the diverse European classical tradition, his celebrated virtuosity as a saxophonist and improviser maintains his position as one of the UK’s most authentic jazz voices.Winter Encounters
launches on the 6th December as Tim (saxophones & bass clarinet) is joined by legendary singer Norma Winstone and ECM recording artist Kit Downes at the piano.
