Duology to play final jazz concert of the year at Wolverhampton venue

Two of Britain’s top jazz musicians will perform in the final concert of the year in the NAC (Newhampton Arts Centre) Jazz Series in Wolverhampton on Thursday, December 21.

Pianist Jason Rebello with saxophonist Tim Garland

Saxophonist Tim Garland and pianist/keyboards player Jason Rebello - the duo Duology - have both had rave reviews as bandleaders and as performers in many outstanding groups.

Tim said he was surprised to have a concert so close to Christmas, as that is unusual in the jazz world.

“But it’s actually a lovely thing to do,” he added.

‘You’ll catch us at the end of a very active year, and it will be a lovely way to wrap it up. We’ve dipped several times into Europe, as well as playing in Britain and Ireland.”

The duo first met at the Guildhall School of Music in London, though the pianist was younger than most of the students there.

“Jason was such a prodigy he was allowed in early,” explained Tim.

Their album as a duo, Life To Life, was released earlier this year.
