A very special double bill tonight, with three musical luminaries.
BB&C is an explosive three-headed monster featuring New York City alto saxophonist Tim Berne, downtown drummer Jim Black and the ever-exploring Nels Cline on guitar. Their debut CD 'The Veil' is from a live recording at The Stone in New York City. Combining elements of avant-garde jazz, skronk rock, heavy metal, and other uncategorizabe influences BB&C is a collaboration between three international jazz pioneers.
Nels Cline is popularly known as a member of Wilco, however the New York guitarist has been steadily building an international profile for his genre-defying style for several decades, exploring jazz, avant garde, rock, country and noise with the likes of Thurston Moore, John Zorn, and of course The Nels Cline Singers.
Tim Berne's soulful body of work is carving a new musical language which continues to push the boundaries and possibilities of jazz.
Virtuosic drummer Jim Black is celebrated worldwide for his limitless technique and innovative concepts. With a highly individual approach to jazz drumming, his style has expanded to include Balkan rhythms, rock songcraft and laptop soundscapes.
