British saxophonist Tim Garland came to the jazz world’s attention working with Chick Corea. Enter The Fire was his solo debut, recorded over two separate sessions in 1992 and 1994.
Jeremy Stacey says:
“It’s hard for me to listen to some of the records I did a long time ago. It was very hard music and we didn’t get much time. I think we were sent a demo a couple of days before and I remember going, ‘I can’t make head nor tail of this, I’ll just have to wait until we get there and play together.’”
“There’s some ropey playing from me, but it was a group of friends: Jason Robello, Mick Hutton on double bass, Gerard Presencer and Tim Garland - all great players. My swing playing changed in that period.”
“I was into Tony Williams then and later I got more into Elvin Jones. They couldn’t be more different as swing players and I love them both, but when I got into Elvin it changed my playing massively.”
