Listen to Jazz from the Camano Shore  This CD includes just a few of Tim's 500+ original compositions, plus two cover tunes - one by soprano sax legend Wayne Shorter, and one from Pat Metheny. Tim has written beautiful tunes with tasteful lyricism and memorable themes, and displays formidable jazz chops. "A massive album on a little label. It is our duty to tell the world. This is a truly beautiful album and I think it might be a truly great album ... It's a very soulful album but definitely not a smooth jazz outing ... An all round joy and one of my most satisfying discoveries." - The Reverend Jonathan Hagger (CD Baby) Tim was born and raised in Stanwood, Washington, and studied at the UNLV Fine Arts Jazz department under musicians such as Rocky Winslow, Stephan Karlsson, Russ Blevins, and Tom Warrington. Tim spent several years in Las Vegas, where he performed in nearly every casino and lounge in the city. Tim also spent a lot of time in Los Angeles as a commercial musician doing work for big band CDs. Tim has shared the stage with musicians like Buddy Greco, Johnny Pate, Roy Haynes, and Leslie Anders. Tim has had the privilege to record with jazz greats Harvey Mason, Ron Carter, Monty Alexander, Phil Woods, James Moody, Marlena Shaw, Kenny Burrell, and Shirley Horn, to name a few. Tim has played in bands ranging from a country back-porch combo to an original free jazz organ trio and a classical saxophone quartet. Musical influences include Gene Ammons, David Liebman, Dexter Gordon, Pat Metheny, and Eddie Harris. After this recording was completed, Tim spent several years playing on cruise ships, eventually becoming musical director; he now performs in the one of the Ringling Brothers bands. He's a man in motion; a single Pisces and likes long walks on the beach and the color blue. Tim says, "if you want any more information than that, you'll have to talk dirty to me."
