Tim Collins

Tim Collins has been called a “world-class vibes player” (CJSR-FM), “a distinctive vibraphone voice” (Radio One FM), a “musician of fire” (Washington Post) and “nothing less than exemplary” (Downbeat Magazine). His original music has been described as “thoughtful, probing composition” (Downbeat), “universal and vibrant” (Blogcritics.org), “stunning sophisticated jazz” (PBS Australia). Tim has released two albums as a leader and has travelled the world with his own group and as a sideman. He has performed and recorded with Donny McCaslin, Antonio Sanchez, Sam Barsh, George Porter Jr., John Ellis, Thomas Barber, Aaron Parks, Ingrid Jensen and Charlie Hunter.

”Collins' music doesn't behave. In fact, it seems to make up it's own rules. 'Fade' contains jazz, minimalism, funk, pop, and rock music. It shatters stereotypes of what the vibraphone can do. The amazing thing is that it all makes perfect sense.” --Mark Saleski

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
