Forging deeply personal sound from a broad swath of the jazz landscape, saxophonist, composer, arranger and educator Tim Green has emerged as a powerful voice, melding deftly swinging hard bop, fluid modernity and soulful gospel.
Tim has performed and recorded with major figures in the jazz world, including Roy Hargrove, Jon Faddis, Hubert Laws, Kenny Burrell, Patrice Rushen, Queen Latifah, Joe Chambers, Sean Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Orrin Evans, Gilad Hekselman and Obed Calvaire.
Performing with such artist has allowed Green to play in some of the most prestigious venues in the world that includes Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Disney Hall, the White House, the Village Vanguard and various concert halls, stadiums, and arenas around the world.
Green is a native of Baltimore, where he grew up surrounded by music. His father and uncle are singers, while his older brother was a trumpet player who Green emulated. While still attending high school at the Baltimore School of the Arts, he was selected from amongst more than 500 hopefuls to join the 25-member Grammy High School All- Star Band, which performed at the recording industry’s gala awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
He received his Bachelor of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied under the tutelage of renowned instructors such as Dick Oatts, Gary Dial, Steve Slagle, and Bob Mintzer. The latter, a longtime member of the Grammy-winning Yellowjackets, calls Green “one of the brightest saxophonists on the scene.” In 2003, he was invited to be a part of the Jazz Aspen Snowmass summer program under such luminaries as Lewis Nash, Russell Malone, Benny Green, Wallace Roney, and Christian McBride.
“Tim Green is a dynamic musician,” says McBride, the ever-in-demand bass giant. “If you make a checklist of everything you’d want in a musician, Tim has it all.”
In 2007, Green earned his Masters in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern California’s Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, where he came under the guiding lights of legends like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Terence Blanchard. The master trumpeter calls Green, “a very talented musician with a wide array of creativity. His sound and writing are built on the strengths of our heritage while also containing a forward looking approach to create his own very personal sound."
In 2008, Green placed second in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz competition. In 2012, he released his first album. Since then, he has been performing in New York and internationally with a wide range of notable players. He returned to his native Baltimore where he has been an educator at Morgan State University and the Peabody School of Johns Hopkins University.
