Tim Whitehead with The Spin Trio @ The Wheatsheaf, Oxford
Thursday 22 January 2015, 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
£10 / £8 (concessions) / £6 (students)
Tim Whitehead was a founding member of Loose Tubes and is one of the best known tenor players on the British jazz scene. His playing takes in many influences – it’s deeply melodic, steeped in blues and soul music but always with a contemporary, sophisticated sense of harmony.
In 2009 he was the first ever musician to be awarded Artist in Residence at Tate Britain. During the residency he wrote Colour Beginnings, a series of compositions written from transcribed improvisations performed in front of and in response to a selection of JMW Turner’s watercolour sketches – this project has resulted in his most recent album Colour Beginnings.
