Tim Garland launches “Winter Encounters” with Norma Winstone

Written by | News

This December, Tim Garland launches his “Winter Encounters” – a series of unique trio performances, beautifully filmed and streamed from Oak Gable Studio.

Each 45-minute set features a unique collaboration of world-class musicians followed by a live Q&A session with the artists, starting with Kit Downes & Norma Winstone on December 6th.

Over the last 30 years, British saxophonist Tim Garland has forged a reputation as a highly distinctive and in-demand musician and composer. His vast CV includes world tours with Chick Corea , large-scale orchestral commissions, a Grammy Award and his own award-winning jazz projects featuring the likes of Joe Locke , Geoffrey Keezer , Gwilym Simcock and Asaf Sirkis .

Whilst often inspired by influences from the diverse European classical tradition, his celebrated virtuosity as a saxophonist and improviser maintains his position as one of the UK’s most authentic jazz voices.


Winter Encounters launches on the 6th December as Tim (saxophones & bass clarinet) is joined by legendary singer Norma Winstone and ECM recording artist Kit Downes at the piano.

These lyrical and highly emotive one-off performances will continue throughout the winter months, and are available to watch on a per-performance basis.

All sets are streamed at 9pm GMT (4pm New York) and are followed by a live Q&A session.

Joining Tim (saxophones, bass clarinet) for the first three Winter Encounters are:
6th December Norma Winstone, Kit Downes
20th December Liane Carroll , Jason Rebello
27th December Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Jason Rebello
