Alto saxophonist Tim Green is no stranger to New York, having studied at the Manhattan School of Music. He's also lived in Los Angeles, where he attended the Thelonious Monk Institute's handpicked masters program. But he's now settled in Baltimore, where he grew up. Since he got home, he's finished up his first recording, Songs From This Season, which casts musicians from up and down the East Coast to execute his compositions. Here, he brings his impassioned delivery to a quintet gig in downtown Manhattan.

Tim Green's quintet preceded Orrin Evans' trio on stage at the 92Y Tribeca in downtown New York City, as part of the WBGO concert series The Checkout: Live.
