“Few musicians working in or around jazz over the last four decades have developed an idiomatic signature more distinctive than Tim Berne.” — New York Times

Alto saxophonist and composer Tim Berne has aptly been named “one of New York City’s essential jazz icons” by Time Out New York. His presence has loomed large on New York’s avant-garde jazz scene for over 35 years. As a leader, he has over 50 albums to his name, and is a constant presence on jazz critics’ annual best-of lists, while his most recent recordings for the acclaimed ECM Record label have won widespread international acclaim.

Tim Berne’s harmonically dense compositions are renowned for their intensely kinetic, dizzyingly intricate quality - spinning seamlessly into furiously passionate free improvisations. For the past decade or so, Berne has developed a deep rapport with pianist Matt Mitchell who the New York Times praised as “a pianist of burrowing focus and an indispensable fixture of the contemporary vanguard.”

“Berne and Mitchell sculpt and engrave with an absolute sense of anticipation and direction, making their set of explorations a stimulating listening experience.” — Jazz Trail
