“The tradition of jazz has always been about incorporating other influences outside of jazz into a gumbo of blended textures,” says Steve Wiest, director of UNT's One O’Clock Lab Band. “This is certainly the case with Tim’s critically acclaimed Rolling Stones Project. Through the masterful reworking of the music by Ries and the full orchestrations by Matt Harris — all propelled by the powerful vocals of Bernard Fowler — the music of the Stones takes on an unexpectedly hip and modern jazz persona. It will be a homecoming for Tim and a great opportunity to introduce Bernard to the UNT community.”
