Winding wind


I have long admired the playing and writing of Tim Garland, and the way in which his works interweave different sound worlds, genres and influences. I first heard Winding wind on an album he recorded with his fantastic group Lammas, and was caught by its energy and folk-inspired rhythmic vitality. In asking Tim to create a new arrangement for saxophone, string quartet, piano, bass and drums/percussion, I wondered in which ways it might differ from the original. The result was no percussion in this arrangement, plenty for the strings to do, and the inclusion of a written solo for the saxophonist with the option of following changes (or a combination of both).
