Tim Gordon's Page



Tim Gordon’s musicianship has been duly-noted in all genres of music, from rock, jazz, funk, top-forty as well as the likes of the Count Basie Orchestra. Having worked live with Pink Floyd, Ray Charles, Henry Mancini, Natalie Cole, as well as orchestral dates with; Harry Connick Jr., Manhattan Transfer and Josh Groban. Gordon’s musical journey continues with an impressive array of top recording artists in literally every genre of music listing him as ‘a first call musician”.

Tim traveled for many years with The Temptations and the Four Tops performing at major venues worldwide which included PBS Specials with The Four Tops such as “Live form the Jackie Gleason Theatre”, a CD recording; “Christmas Here With You”, and the DVD; “The Four Tops Live at the MGM Grand”.

Diversity has been Tim’s calling card, with literally thousands of recording sessions to his credit; national and regional artists releases, movie and television themes and numerous commercial dates. For twenty years Tim worked for Sound Source recording studio transcribing and recording all genres of saxophone and woodwind music for the popular “Sound Choice Accompaniment Tracks”.

As an educator, Tim encourages his students with the knowledge that there is life after music school. “It is my goal as an educator that as my students find their place in life, they might continue to perform.”

The Jazz Network Worldwide is excited to promote multi-instrumentalist Tim Gordon to its worldwide platform with his new CD “Up & Up”. As a veteran performing and recording artist Tim Gordon penned and arranged all the songs on his new project and hand-picked some of the best musicians on the scene. “When you hear ‘Up & Up’ it makes you immediately take notice of the funky grooves and the cohesiveness of such a stellar chemistry of musical excellence. Tim Gordon truly knows how to bring a musical conversation to pass, leaving you with wanting more” says Jaijai Jackson, creator of The Jazz Network Worldwide Social Network.

“It’s always fun to record music with great players, music is what we do, its who we are” states Gordon. Notables such as Keith Carlock, Jim Brock, Tim Smith, Roddy Smith, Steve Willets, Robby Robinson, Felton Offard, Roy Agee and John Thornton made this project come to life and expertly produced by Tim Smith and Tim Gordon.

This project has been brewing for a while and has been long overdue, the nucleus of this project was to have ‘fun’ says Gordon wanting his listening audience to experience as much fun as they had recording it.

American Big Band dates

Posted on December 7, 2013 at 11:54am 0 Comments

Finishing up four days with the American Big Band "Home for the Holidays" Christmas Show. What a great group of consumate professionals. You'd expect nothing less out of Nashville TN. They don't call it music city for nothing.

The entire cast is absolutely swinging. Steve Kummer is the bomb, along with Jimmy Boland, Vinnie Ciesielski, and Josh on drums. The singers and dancers are superb. So much fun......... 

Great show last night by Mingo Fishtrap

Last night Michele and I went out to hear the band Mingo Fishtrap. What a great band to hear live. They are funky, soulful and just down right fun. 

It was a special treat to talk to Dan Bechdolt the tenor plkayer with the band. He is a nice guy and lots of fun to listen to. Dan is playing on a new FJIII Macsax mouthpiece designed by Eric Falcon. He loves it and sounded great. What, you thought we wern't going to talk about that? It's a small world and Dan had run into my friend Doug…

Today I was talking with Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide and we thought we'd ask our friends here in my music network what tune they think from my "Up & Up" CD should be the next single.  

As I move forward I'd really like to hear from you and get your input.

I hope that everyone is well and happy,

Many thanks for your…

"The Music of Dexter Gordon"

               Tuesday night at the Stage Door Theater I was honored to play a concert featuring the music of Saxophone icon Dexter Gordon. The concert was a huge success thanks to the brilliant playing of Mark Stallings on piano, Elisa Pruett on upright bass and Brian Sullivan on drums. Not to mention the stellar audience who attended the sold out performance.    Many thanks to all involved. I will look forward to the chance to do this again.        All good things, Tim  See More

Hey Mr. Gordon, how's it going. Where can I order a copy of your CD? I have not performed since I moved to Florida but I am still practicing a LOT. Its paying off slowly. Teaching at this high school is my priority now. How's everything up there?

Hi Tim.  I didn't buy the soprano piece from Mike.   He offered it at the same price he advertised it for initially, but I had already found a mouthpiece in the meantime, and I really felt he should get a proper price for it (4x what he thought it was worth), so I passed.  If you like the Selmer Soloist pieces otherwise, I'd encourage you to try one of the Super Session soprano pieces.  They *only* have large tip openings and, to me, feel/sound very much like the Soloist pieces for a lot less $$$.

Thanks for having me Tim, I think you guys are doing a great job with this site and can't wait for it to really start to snowball.  I'm still getting used to navigating around it at the moment and want to apologize in advance if I put things in the wrong place, but I'll get there.

Industry Veteran Ricky Schultz says...

"The measure of a musician is their body of work.  It's what seperates the men from the boys.​

Credentials --- the company you keep. It takes time, opportunity, and in the end-real talent do such a thing. You have to put in many thousands of hours--you can't fake the funk.

What makes a body of work? Twenty years with both The Temptations and The Four Tops. Like a rock.

Having worked with a list of artists so deep, (Google it) from so many genres, that suddenly it hits you--TIM GORDON is one of those players--one of the clutch, go to saxophonists in contemporary music.

Dedicated to his art, Tim is a connoisseur-level musician. His dedication is apparent when you hear his sound. And suddenly it hits you again--you've probably heard him before, maybe even seen him along your musical journey.

SOULFUL, hip-smart, and technically brilliant. What else could you ask of a saxophone player?

Encyclopedic range, comfort with any kind of music, and besides all that? He's a real nice guy.


You're in for a real treat here. Tim Gordon has finally made a record of his own.

Enjoy,
Ricky Schultz
