Tim and Sam combine their love for these two sax legends in an evening not to be missed, in the gorgeous surroundings of Cambridge’s coolest cocktail bar.
Highly respected multi-instrumentalist Tim Boniface delivers a powerful and irrepressibly swinging sound on both alto and tenor saxophones. In addition to his acclaimed jazz suites, Tim’s recent collaborations include Tony Kofi, Polly Gibbons, Tara Minton, James Pearson, Phil Merriman, and star vocalist Irene Serra, with whom he has developed a project based on the music of Dexter Gordon and Nancy Wilson.
Award-winning saxophonist Sam Miles’ virtuosity, creativity and melodic imagination make him a sought after musician both live and in the studio. Sam plays tenor with the Tom Green Septet, and has also worked with the James Taylor Big Band, Misha Abbado Group and the Miles/Xenopoulos Quartet as well as recently developing a show based on the music of Stan Getz.
“Sam Miles is making a memorable impression on the UK jazz scene… a talented, creative saxophonist. You would do well to try and catch him live.” Sandy Brown
“Tim Boniface instantly takes you by surprise… steeped in the tradition of jazz legend Dexter Gordon on tenor, Tim plays very much in his own style along the sound of the great jazz masters”. Tony Kofi
