The Tim Hughes Quartet is a varied group of accomplished musicians from East Tennessee focusing on popular jazz standards from the different eras of the American born genre.  Founded in 2008, the group typically includes a bassist, a drummer, a guitarist or keyboardist, and occasionally, a guest soloist; each one bringing their own musical vocabulary to the improvisational setting.   Consequently, each performance is different, each performance is unique.

With a horn player as a front man, the group tends to focus on songs made popular by trumpeters of years past, such as Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, and Dizzy Gillespie.  And when he picks up his flugelhorn, Tim can channel Chuck Mangione to perfection.   With a solid rhythm section, the group is versatile enough to perform any type of jazz.  Whether it be bebop or big band, cool or Latin, mainstream or modal, progressive or traditional, the Tim Hughes Quartet has it covered.
