Tim Whalen makes a stunning debut as a songwriter with his highly personal and powerful first single "Tomorrow."
It's song about forgiveness. It reminds us to not only forgive others, but to forgive ourselves. It's also a song about hope, telling us that no matter what darkness we come from, we can always start again.
This album features Tim's creative arrangements of the music of the great jazz pianist Bud Powell.

The first release from the Tim Whalen Nonet is a stripped-down live jazz recording. No overdubs, and no flown-in solos. This is real, in the moment improvised music.
