This is one of the best vibraphonists that I've heard in years. Tim's musical creativity really shines through, not to mention Tim and the group having brought a refreshing new sound to the table for us to partake of. --Leon Reyes, KVMR 89.5 FM Nevada City/Sacramento CA
Collins' vibraphone style, which is pleasant, mature, and full bodied... is nothing less than exemplary --DOWNBEAT
