Tim Garland (born 19 October 1966) is a British jazz saxophonist, composer and band-leader, whose work has included performing on Duran Duran's Medazzaland album.


Tim is an innovative bass clarinet player and composer who crosses boundaries between modern jazz and classical concert music. As a performer, he has worked widely both in Britain and elsewhere in the world, with particular highlights being a continuing collaboration with Chick Corea and his four year association with Bill Bruford. As composer, he has fulfilled commissions from the LSO, the Northern Sinfonia, BBC Concert Orchestra and Westminster Abbey Choir, as well as countless small and large jazz-based ensembles.

As a band-leader, he first achieved wide recognition with the jazz/folk crossover group Lammas (which included Don Paterson and Christine Tobin), going on to further success with a number of groups under his own name, the Dean Street Underground Orchestra, Storms/Nocturnes, Acoustic Triangle and his award winning Lighthouse Project.
