Saxophonist/bandleader/major figure in British jazz Tim Whitehead has been up to some fascinating stuff at Tate Britain on a Leverhulme Fellowship.
He’s been taking inspiration from JMW Turner’s life and work, and developing improvisations. The first public airing of this project will be as part of Late at Tate – a kind of open eveing which I reviewed on a previous occasionHERE – this Friday evening October 2nd.
There will be a performance based on the work as part of the November Late at Tate on Nov 6th. I’m very much looking forward to having conversations with Tim Whitehead, a Tate curator and another Turner specialist. So I get to go exploring the well-springs of the creative process with articulate people. It is going to be interesting and enjoyable to get my head around all that stuff.
I do like this job!
