Tim Berne's Snakeoil


Fremont Theater (map) Northeast
Wed., Sept. 20, 7:30 p.m. 2017 21+


Tim Berne called me out on Twitter once, because I suggested that his friend David Torn seemed distracted and uninspired when I saw him perform live. Were it anyone else, I would’ve clapped back, but that response just fits so well with Berne’s personality and performing style. The New York-based saxophonist infuses his music with a brusque directness that reflects his personal and political frustrations. It also reveals that, whether with the jagged power of his current project Snakeoil or in collaboration with folks like Torn or the Italian ensemble Enten Eller, he's responding to their work with spirit and fire.
