Tim Clarkson National Tour Winter 2014 Media Release

The Tim Clarkson Trio are very excited about their upcoming National Tour with dates in Queensland, New South Wales, Canberra, Victoria and two days of appearances at the Devonport Jazz Festival in Tasmania.

The tour begins on the 18th of June in Tim's hometown of Toowoomba Queensland with a gig at USQ as part of their Twilight series  with National Jazz Award winner Kristin Berardi and ending in Sydney with a live recording at the Sound Lounge in August. 


The Trio will be showcasing their latest album “Land of Free Men” which marks a new development in Clarkson’s unique voice. Exploring the historic and contemporary expressions of what it means to live in a free society the album is in part dedicated to the victims of the Newtown School Massacre which occurred during the recording session.


Clarkson’s partnership with Cameron Reid and Alex Bonham, along with lyrical compositions marked by rhythmic complexity make this album one of the signature Australian Jazz releases of 2013.

“Genius can often be misunderstood…. Listen to Land of Free Men a few times, particularly Freelance Libertarian and Bow Rider, to hear some pearls of instrumental wisdom.” 4/5 stars – Alternative Media Group


“Scintillating stuff.” 4/5 stars - Imran Shahid


“Alex Boneham’s bass and Cameron Reid’s drums are very much equal voices with Clarkson’s tenor saxophone, which often twists itself into the knotty rhythms rather than flying above them; rhythms made even more sinewy by Boneham’s singular vigour”.

3.5/5 stars – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
