When Tim Ries rolls into Jazz Standard, one can never predict what kind of music will result – only that it will meet the highest criteria of quality and creativity. The saxophonist has long straddled the parallel worlds of jazz and pop, with credits that range from Phil Woods and the Maria Schneider Orchestra to Paul Simon and the Rolling Stones (Tim has been a member of the Stones touring band since 2003). This special Jazz Standard engagement is divided into two different shows: August 6 will highlight the music of Tim Ries' new album, Life Changes; August 7 will feature the material of his Rolling Stones Project and Stones backing vocalist Bernard Fowler, who himself has a new CD Inside/Out forthcoming with spoken–word versions of Jagger/Richards songs. "In Tim's playing," says his fellow saxophonist Dave Liebman, "there is the strong passion and searching quality which for me must be present in really great, spontaneous jazz."
