"Creese is a majestic bass player"

"A warm and exciting virtuoso"
The Stage
TIM GARLAND was the tenor saxophone player in Chick Corea's Origin band, and continues to work with Chick on a regular basis. He recently made his debut on Corea's Stretch Records with the release of his acclaimed CD 'Made By Walking'. Tim also leads his own popular 10-piece Underground Orchestra. Tim studied composition at The Guildhall School of Music, later changing to saxophones. Three years later he joined Ronnie Scott's band for a short period. He has played with Gary Burton, Billy Cobham, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler, Tommy Smith, Geoff Keezer and Joe Locke. Tim became widely known in Britain for fronting Lammas, a group fusing folk and jazz genres that ran for ten years. He has written many original pieces for Acoustic Triangle and his arrangements of Ravel's Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé are particularly inspired. Tim has won three prizes at the British Jazz Awards - for soloing, band leading and composition, and he teaches at the Royal Academy of Music in London. In 2003 Tim was appointed as Composer in Residence and Fellow of the University of Newcastle. In 2004 he performed his own saxophone concerto with the BBC Concert Orchestra in a packed Queen Elizabeth Hall.

"A hugely talented individual... Garland's artful lyricism is a joy to listen to."
Mike Flynn - Audio Street.

GWILYM SIMCOCK is the most outstanding jazz pianist and composer of his generation. He is also an exceptional classical pianist and French horn player. Gwilym attained the highest marks in the country for his Associated Board Grade 8 exams - on both piano and French horn - at the age of eleven. After attending Chethams School in Manchester he moved to London, where he studied piano at The Royal Academy of Music. His teachers there included John Taylor, Nick Weldon and Geoff Keezer. Gwilym left the Royal Academy with a first-class honours degree and the coveted 'Principal's Prize' for outstanding achievement. Gwilym was a member of the winning Perrier Young Jazz Ensemble in 2001, and has played with the BBC Big Band and the National Youth Jazz Orchestra on both French horn and piano. Gwilym has performed with Tim Whitehead, Iain Ballamy, Bill Bruford, Julian Arguelles, Pete King and Don Weller, as well as leading his own groups. He toured with Kenny Wheeler on French horn in 2003, and on piano in January 2005 - when his fellow musicians included Dave Holland, Evan Parker, Norma Winstone and Lee Konitz. As a composer, Gwilym has been influenced by Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa.

"This 22-year-old pianist is exceptional, as both player and composer."
