Tim Laughlin

With the beginning of the twenty-first century comes a core of musicians with fresh and imaginative ideas for this timeless American art form known as “jazz”. This is especially true in New Orleans and clarinetist Tim Laughlin is indeed one of these musicians.

Tim Laughlin (pronounced Lock-lin) was born and raised in New Orleans, a city constantly re-inventing itself. His style and sound are uniquely his own, contrasting the classic style he grew up listening to and the contemporary influences of many.

Atlanta Jazz Party

Good Times Jazz Records (Fantasy) was pleased to release one of his latest CDs, “Blue Orleans”, a perfect example of why Laughlin is one of the “cutting edge” musicians whose musical form is always growing and changing. He has enjoyed his own compositions as recorded by artists all over the world, some in completely different genres.

“...Tim Laughlin appears to be among the best of this decade's younger clarinetists.” --Jack Sohmer, critic for JazzTimes Magazine

“We might construct a simple musical genealogy for one significant “school” of New Orleans jazz clarinetists: Roppolo> Fazola> Fountain> Laughlin. If one listens carefully to all of them, the lineage makes some sense.” --Tom Jacobsen, Clarinet Magazine
