Tim Ries' Rolling Stones Project in Pittsburgh - April 13-14


Sign in to view read count
The Rolling Stones and Jazz music aren't two terms one usually expects to see in the same sentence. But Tim Ries does more than introduce audiences to the idea of rock and jazz mingling: he showcases his talent at melding the two in new and interesting ways, proving that good music always makes boundary lines irrelevant. Having just returned from a second world tour with the Rolling Stones playing saxophone, keyboard and organ, his other recording and performance credits include work with such diverse talents as Paul Simon, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Wonder, and Blood Sweat & Tears. Ries has already released five original jazz CDs and is now channeling his energy into creating jazz interpretations of rock and roll standards, specifically the music of Jagger and Richards with his Rolling Stones Project. A unique contemporary brand of music that appeals to jazz and rock fans alike! Ries has set out to reclaim some of the listeners lost to rock decades ago by using these hit compositions as the inspiration for a set of jazz tunes that improvise (and even swing) their way through some of the most popular standards in music today.

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.
