Saxophonist Tim Hill, author of 'The Saxophone and the Art of Hamster Strangling', is one of UK jazz's most closely guarded secrets, little known outside the hard core free jazz community. Yet when he does step on stage, he's one of the most fearsomely exciting players on the scene.
Much of his obscurity is attributable to the fact that he spends a lot of his time working outdoors in a wide variety of street bands, community theatre, and celebratory rituals. Recent projects include involvement with the Mellstock Village Band, running the Pandaemonium Street Band, and development of a West Country based circus/barndance band.
But he has remained a highly respected, if seldom sighted presence on the UK improv scene, working and recording with such luminaries as Pat Thomas, Steve Noble, John Edwards and Alex Ward, with the last of whom he shares front-line duties in Alex's storming quartet Predicate.
