Tim Ray Agitated Cat Music

Tim's Solo Projects

After decades of accompanying some of the best purveyors of jazz, classical and pop music, Tim Ray has brought his extraordinary musicianship front and center. He forges masterful performances that embrace the traditions of the solo piano genre, while finding ways to take the listener on surprising and exhilarating journeys well beyond those borders. Tim’s ear for melody, exuberant rhythms, sharp yet subtle wit and poignant lyricism all come together to generate stirring renditions of songs both new and familiar. “It's not merely that he has chops to burn; it's that he finds unusual and serendipitous musical contexts to unfold and display his genius that other pianists fail to locate.”

Solo programs include:

100 Years of Jazz Piano - from Scott Joplin to Keith Jarrett and beyond

Tribute Concerts - paying homage to the music of Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, the Beatles and Others (Sample Video)

The Great American Songbook - Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin - favorites from classic stage and screen productions

In the Moment - an electrifying program of spontaneously improvised music drawing on jazz, classical and world influences
