Grammy award winning saxophonist and composer Tim Garland has illuminated the UK music scene for twenty years and has formed an integral part of Chick Corea's globe trotting band for the past 14 years.
Tim's new album Songs to the North Sky has been critically acclaimed. The Guardian and the Observer awarded the album 5 STARS and the former described the work as
“… imaginative and consummately crafted … it feels like the culmination of a life's work.”
The new double album encompasses both aspects of Tim's great talent: as an improviser he demonstrates his prowess with his renowned group Lighthouse, featuring long time collaborator and friend, Jason Rebello and the extraordinary percussionist Asaf Sirkis. As an award winning arranger Tim exhibits his skills writing for the Royal Northern Sinfonia on the second disc's titular suite.
Songs to the North Sky is the work of an artist at the peak of his talents. The concert at St. George's is a chance to see one of the UK's greatest jazz stars at the height of his powers and an opportunity not to be missed.
