Firstly, do check the link above, and listen to Tim’s music (or indeed the clips to follow).
It wasn’t just music, it was an abstract description of extreme force and energy.
Tim’s playing, in my opinion, nods to Miles Davis while maintaining an integrity of original character and tone; it is reminiscent of some of Miles’ more obscure albums (such as Aura) but Tim mentions his favourite records to be “In Person Friday” and “Saturday Nights live at the Blackhawk”. From his online bio:
The first Miles Davis recording that I heard is still one of my favorite jazz record….In Person Friday and Saturday Nights live at the Blackhawk. The band was swinging and popping and the recording has a real dark sound that makes the music especially intriguing. Then I heard Bitches Brew and life changed once again. Although I love everything that Miles played, the records from In A Silent Way to Agartha are my favorites. Those records reflect the social and political energies of that time. It wasn’t just music, it was an abstract description of extreme force and energy.
Fairly concisely, from Wikipedia (for a more complete bio, pop on to Tim’s website):
