Tim Willcox’s saxophone sings and, at times, broods passionately and inventively in the vein of Jan Garbarek, as well as modern master Rick Margitza.

Based in Portland, Oregon, Tim Wilcox has been honored with multiple awards, including a Presidential Scholar of the Arts honor and the Stan Getz/Clifford Brown fellowship. He has performed and recorded with music greats including David Friesen, George Mitchell, Gino Vannelli, Peter Erskine, Larry Grenadier, and Ingrid Jensen.

Superjazzers will appeal to fans of Keith Jarrett’s 1970s European Quartet. Willcox’s saxophone sings and, at times, broods inventively in the vein of Jan Garbarek, as well as modern master Rick Margitza. Pianist David Goldblatt carries shades of icons such as Jarrett and Fred Hersch. Holding down the rhythmic force of the group, bassist Bill Athens and drummer Charlie Doggett work together masterfully to establish a lush backdrop that ebbs and flows with the quartet’s dramatic musical landscape.

Lineup: Tim Willcox, tenor sax; David Goldblatt, piano; Bill Athens, bass; Charlie Doggett, drums
