‘His level of genius is rare’ – Chick Corea on Tim Garland
Tim is embarking upon a major recording project, cataloguing the profound music making he has shared with his longest musical partnership, that with the incredible pianist Jason Rebello.
In over thirty years of friendship they have toured, shared and recorded music which has spurred their artistic growth as separate artists and as band members.
Both artists have had illustrious careers; Rebello working for many years with Sting, and Jeff Beck as well as Wayne Shorter and many others; Garland famously working with Chick Corea, and producing over 20 well received albums of his own.
Now it is time to focus this long-honed rapport in a series of duet recordings entitled Duology.
Featuring Grammy-winner Garland on tenor, soprano and sopranino saxophone and bass clarinet, with Rebello on piano and celeste, this acoustic duo is a testament to a long lasting friendship and pursuit of musical depth, humour, soulful melancholy and exhilaration. Along with several brand new works from both artists are stunning renditions of timeless jazz classics they grew up with.
This concert will be the first post-lockdown appearance from the two, and the beginning to the project which will feature material that they have known and loved for 30 years alongside brand new compositions.
