Tim Berne's Snakeoil, presented by New Music Circle and KDHX
New York-based alto saxophonist Tim Berne has long been regarded as one of the Downtown scene's most forward thinking bandleaders. Active in New York since 1974, Berne has fostered the creative talent of subsequent generations. Since learning music at the elbow of St. Louis master Julius Hemphill in the '70s, Berne has built an expansive discography, and The New York Times described Berne's signature sound as one consisting of "wide intervals, athletic tone, tiny grooves worked into the music's pivots and hesitations".
Within the project, Snakeoil, Berne writes highly investigative and intricate jazz, bringing together the talents of Oscar Noriega (clarinet, bass clarinet), Matt Mitchell (piano), and Ches Smith (drums, percussion). The group has released two highly acclaimed albums for ECM.
