A storming set from the Vortex in 2007...Tim Berne is one of my "big five"...a prodigious improviser and composer but also a wonderful 'team player' in improv settings,I think.
The company he keeps here is pretty amazing too...a special trans-Atlantic crossing indeed with Joe Morris also involved.This set comes to the boil beautifully and eloquently defines the common ground shared by this disparate,ad-hoc group of musicians: coming together,taking risks and sharing their vulnerability in an open and free setting.
