Tim Garland Celebrates Stan Getz and Chick Corea

EFG London Jazz Festival


  • Tim Garland saxophone
  • Thomas Gould violin
  • Sacconi Quartet
  • Yuri Goloubev double bass
  • Asaf Sirkis drums

In his 50th birthday year, saxophonist and composer Tim Garland performs a host of world premières for the EFG London Jazz Festival.

Chick Corea recognised Tim’s talent 17 years ago, and since then they have toured the world together. In this concert Tim will perform his own arrangements of classic Chick Corea pieces such as Crystal Silence.

We will also be treated to a reinvented version of Stan Getz’s 1961 underground hit Focus through Tim’s own suite Re-Focus, created in response to Stan Getz’s personal favourite release. This version for saxophone and strings will feature Thomas Gould, the Sacconi Quartet, Asaf Sirkis and Yuri Golobev alongside Tim, and includes a completely transcribed piece which is faithful to Stan’s original solo.

‘Sure footed virtuosity….a dazzling standard’. The Times

‘Formidable and devastatingly creative’. The Guardian

‘His level of genius is rare’. Chick Corea
