Bobby Timmons: Jazz's Most Underrated Pianist

A detailed exploration of the life of Bobby Timmons, this lively presentation includes spirituals, Timmons compositions, and music by other jazz greats like Art Blakey, Cannonball and Nat Adderley, and Bud Powell.


One of the most important soul jazz and hard bop pianists, Timmons's contribution to the jazz genre in the fifties and sixties cannot be overstated.

Beyond the live music and commentary from Patrick and Hot Takes Trio there are recorded examples of Timmons, analyses of recorded music and transcriptions, and opportunities for audience participation. Also available with an optional powerpoint multimedia presentation.
