Bebop Spoken There

Faye McCalman: "For a while I would hear other artists and feel that I need to be like that person, have what they have; but then I realised that everyone has their own thing and what I connect with most is when I can tell an artist is just being themselves." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Preview: Tim Garland Quartet - Sage Gateshead.

Saxophonist Tim Garland returns to Sage Gateshead this Friday (October 21) for the third time in three years. This will be my first time and I've heard from various sources what I've been missing.
He's accompanied by his regular band of percussion master Asaf Sirkis, keyboard wizard Jason Rebello and relative youngster, Ant Law who played a fine set with his own quintet in Hexham last year, and was nominated alongside Nigel Price and veteran Jim Mullen in the best guitar category of Jazzwise magazine this year.
Garlands' recent music is influenced by Jazz-rock, various British and American saxophonists, Celtic Music, Latin Music and particularly the music of Chick Corea, with whom he clearly shares enormous mutual respect.
The absence of a bass player in the band, he claims, made him 'search harder as a composer' and gave more freedom to the musicians, including Ant Laws' eight string guitar, Hammond organ and Rhodes electric piano bringing a 'wonderful fat bass end'.
I've just played their excellent latest album One with some striking juxtaposition between baritone and soprano and would recommend this gig to anyone with an ear for Jazz, musicianship, Asian Fusion, instrumental progressive rock or innovative and experimental music generally.
