#3 Tim Warfield

My guest today is the man. Tim Warfield. Legend. He’s shared the stage with everyone from Donald Byrd, to Marcus Miller, to Christian McBride, to Shirley Scott, to Nicholas Payton, Charles Fambrough, Terell Stafford, Stefon Harris, Orrin Evans, and that is the extremely abridged version.  But what is most impressive to me is how he encourages, energizes, and leads the next generation.


Our conversation was super inspiring as we jumped around from various topics including fashion, conquering fear, dealing with the business of music, his unique take on ear training, as well as some nuggets of wisdom from a life spent among the masters.


If you haven't checked out his work, I highly recommend his albums Gentle Warrior, Jazzland (his most recent release), and my personal favorite Spherical, his deep dive into the work and genius of Thelonious Sphere Monk.
