Read "Congratulations to You" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

As if Tim Berne were a pied piper bearing the eleventh hour of democracy solely on his back, on the fourteen-minute opener “Bat Tears" (recorded in 2010) his rebel alto and now-retired baritone saxophones presciently pierce the abhorrent now under which we all labor, with a viscerally ecstatic, David Torn-Dopplered, sweeping, urgency which seizes the senses ...

Paraphrase: Please Advise

Read "Please Advise" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Saxophonist Tim Berne has taken his Snakeoil group to the top, with four excellent CD releases on ECM Records, including 2017's Incidentals. The ECM label is considered by many to be the gold star standard in terms of jazz--though the word “jazz" is way too confining to describe the music in their extensive catalog. That level ...

Tim Berne's Bloodcount: Seconds

Read "Seconds" reviewed by Sean Patrick Fitzell

Nearly ten years after their last performance, saxophonist Tim Berne has resuscitated archival recordings of his influential group Bloodcount. The three-disc Seconds includes two concerts from 1997 and a documentary DVD from 1994.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
