Tim taught me my first song on the Alto Sax called "You Make Me Feel Brand New" by the stylistics, so I could play it for my wife at our wedding. That was many years ago now and I haven't been able to put the sax down since.
Really enjoy Tim's teaching, playing and patience. I have since started my own band called The UnderCover Band (www.theundercoverband.com) and try to make a point of getting out to see Tim play whenever possible. I'm a big fan, thanks for everything Tim. I would also someday like to share the stage with Tim on a tune or two if the opportunity ever presents itself.

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.
