Tim Fitzgerald is a Chicago based guitarist and bandleader. He is also author of the book 625 Alive: the Wes Montgomery BBC Concert Transcribed, which has been hailed as the "Ultimate Study of Wes Montgomery's music" (Just Jazz Guitar Magazine) and “One of the 50 greatest guitar books of all time” (The 50 Greatest Guitar Books). He has written columns for Downbeat Magazine, Just Jazz Guitar Magazine and Chicago Jazz Magazine and performed clinics at the Frank Mantooth Jazz Festival.
Tim leads two bands in Chicago -- Tim Fitzgerald's Full House and the Tim Fitzgerald Quartet -- and is a sideman in a multitude of other projects.
Tim's larger group, Full House, is a seven piece, three horn ensemble inspired by the music of jazz great Wes Montgomery. The band features new original arrangements of Wes' music -- not just Wes Montgomery songs, but Wes' famous chord solos and octaves solos as well.
His smaller group, The Tim Fitzgerald Quartet, features a mix of straight ahead jazz and soul music, including Tim's original compositions, the music of Wes Montgomery, and the music of soul jazz greats such as Dr. Lonnie Smith.
Tim has performed at venues from Chicago's Green Mill to the Luxor in Las Vegas, from NYC to Homer, AK. TV and film musical appearances include PBS's Art Beat, the Sony film "The Myth of Fingerprints" and the animated film "Hoodwinked, Too." The many luminaries he has performed with include Von Freeman, Wycliffe Gordon, Ron Perrillo, Makaya McCraven, Marquis Hill, and Denis Charles.
