Reviews of Tim Whitehead

 

01/12/2008 Peter Bacon, Birmingham Post *****

Whitehead has a highly personal, always gorgeous sound on tenor and an infinite vocabulary - in a country of fine saxophonists he is one of the finest.

 

01/12/2007 Andy Hamilton - Jazz Review

For my money, the finest tenor player in Britain today

 

01/12/2007 Peter Lund - Crescendo

There are many fine tenor players on the current British scene but Tim Whitehead is undoubtedly one of the best we have

Kwartet: Seventh Daze – review

(Homemade)

In the newly formed Kwartet, saxophonists Tim Whitehead and Tony Woods go for a straight repertoire – Rodgers and Hart's My Romance, Charlie Parker's Confirmation and Dave Brubeck's In Your Own Sweet Way, alongside original folk and contemporary-jazz themes. It's unpretentiously joyous music-making, often very reminiscent of 1950s contrapuntal jazz featuring two-horn front lines, and the contrast between Woods' restraint and Whitehead's rugged vigour keeps the mix simmering. Whitehead's Kristina, written for his daughter, has a delectable sax/bass unison theme, the steady 5/4 whirl of the folk- dance Dilemma reflects Woods' deepest affections, My Romance features the two saxes seamlessly interwoven, and the bebop classic Confirmation rattles along with a nimble, knowing relish. It's old wine in new bottles, but engagingly done.
