About the Artists
Tia Fuller, saxophonist, composer, and teacher, has recorded three CDs with her quartet. The first, Pillar of Strength, received praise as being "an exhilarating work that introduced her as a leader who strives for perfection" (Terrell Holmes, All About Jazz Magazine). Her sophomore release, Healing Space, is an offering of “melodic medicine” that the wide-eyed optimist sincerely hopes will serve as a healing agent for those who indulge in it. Tia released her third CD “Decisive Steps” in January of 2010.
Tia has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA and Master’s degree in Jazz Pedagogy and Performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder. The dynamic saxophonist has been featured in Jazz Improv Magazine, Rocky Mountain News, The Philadelphia Tribune, The Star Ledger, Downbeat Magazine and many other print and online publications. She was selected to be a member of the all-female band touring with R&B star, Beyoncé. As a devoted educator, she presents lectures and teaches ensembles and masterclasses at some of the most respected institutions in the country, including Stanford University’s “Jazz Workshop,” the University of Idaho’s Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, WBGO’s “Children in Jazz” Series, Duquesne University and Panama Jazz Festival.
