TOM VARNER picture
Tom Varner is internationally known as the foremost jazz French horn player of his generation, and as an inventive, witty, and passionate composer, breaking new ground in his writing for small-group jazz. Over the years, he has composed for and led ensembles ranging from trios to big bands. As Nate Chinen (NY Times/Philadelphia City Paper) wrote in 2000, "Varner has a Mingus-like gift for intertwining complex counter-melodies in a manner that's more soulful than acrobatic. This approach creates countless opportunities for inspired improvisation, resulting in a marvel of cohesive ensemble writing and playing." At times, Tom's music reflects his former teachers Jaki Byard, George Russell, Steve Lacy (Tom played in his octet in the 90s), and jazz French horn master Julius Watkins, as well as other loves such as Stravinsky and Miles Davis.

Tom's newest project, Heaven and Hell, a new work for tentet, was premiered at the Seattle Art Museum
