The NWSA Jazz Combos will offer compositions by jazz saxophone masters such as John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Sam Rivers, Dexter Gordon, and featured special guest artist, Tim Warfield during the Jazz Combos Concert. NWSA students will perform alongside celebrated Tenor Saxophonist, Tim Warfield. Tim is a first-call saxophonist and has recorded with his acclaimed peers such as Terrell Stafford, Nicholas Payton, Christian McBride, Eric Reed, Carl Allen, and countless others. His recent recording, Jazzland, on the Criss-Cross label, is receiving airplay on jazz radio stations nationally.

Warfield attended Howard University in Washington, D.C. for two years before leaving to lead and co-lead groups in the Central Pennsylvania and Baltimore/Washington areas. In 1990, he was chosen to be a member of trumpeter and CBS/Sony recording artist Marlon Jordan’s Quintet, of which he remained a member for three years. In 1991, he was selected to record “Tough Young Tenors” on the Island / Antilles label, which was listed as one of the top ten recordings of the year by the New York Times, ultimately rising to number five, on the Billboard  top 100 Jazz charts. Warfield has made several television appearances including the Today Show, Bill Cosby’s You Bet Your Life (where he was a member of the house band until 1992), and Ted Turner’s 1998 Trumpet Awards.
Tim’s recently released recording “Jazzland” on the Criss Cross Jazz label, features trumpeter Terell Stafford, organist Pat Bianchi, drummer Byron Landham and percussionist Daniel Sadownick.
