Long-time collaborators Mike Walker and Gwilym Simcock have produced some of the most interesting compositions in recent contemporary jazz. They will be joined in tonight’s performance by the virtuoso violinist Thomas Gould.
Grammy award-winning saxophonist and composer Tim Garland celebrates jazz great Stan Getz’ 1961 cult hit ‘Focus’,
joined by Asaf Sirkis; Drums, Yuri Goloubev; Double Bass, Thomas Gould; Violin, and the Singh Quartet.
Jazzwise magazine wrote of this work’s premiere at the 2016 London Jazz Festival ; ‘Taking an inspired collaboration by saxophonist Stan Getz and arranger Eddie Sauter, and in the process giving us a beautifully re-scored suite of tunes with immense scope to improvise……..Garland’s ability as bandleader to know just how far to push a tune, bend a note, challenge his audience, produced what must surely have been a highpoint of his stellar career’.
