Tim Berne's Snakeoil
Tim Berne's Snakeoil
Tim Berne's Snakeoil, is a potent blend of new voices and new ideas. Oscar Noriega (woodwinds), Matt Mitchell (piano) and Ches Smith (percussion and vibes) bring fresh sounds and vibrant energy. Berne responds with a stunning book of new pieces balancing compositional rigor with fluid group improvisation. Hypnotic rhythms and long, seductive melodies collide with jagged dissonances and surprising textural shifts. A lush, organic blend of saxophones and clarinets is layered with acoustic keyboards and an ever-changing tapestry of percussion. Freedom and discipline, consonance and discord, past, present and future - all work together to power this new band from Tim Berne.
