Event description

Description

Matt Mitchell solo + Tim Berne and Matt Mitchell duo

Matt Mitchell, piano; Tim Berne, alto saxophone

Tim Berne kicked off the Sound It Out series in June 2012 with his band Snakeoil. Now he helps celebrate the fifth anniversary of Sound It Out in league with Snakeoil bandmate Matt Mitchell – with ticket proceeds going to help fund Greenwich House Music School, whose wonderful hospitality makes Sound It Out possible.

Matt’s new Screwgun album, førage, presents the compositions of Tim Berne like they’ve never been heard before, in beautiful refractions for solo piano. David Torn, producer of førage, says: “Matt has created gorgeous tone poems with his arrangements. People who know Tim’s music will discover a whole new side of his art through this project, and people who have never heard his music now have an ideal entrée.” The night’s first set will see Matt play music from this solo album; the second half will bring Tim to the stage for a set of duo performances. Tim was named one of New York City’s essential jazz icons by Time Out New York, while the UK’s Jazzwise underscored the stature of his recent music by declaring it “suffused with genuine humanity and more than a little wisdom.” Matt’s quartet LP Vista Accumulation placed in the top 20 of NPR’s 2015 Critic’s Poll, with Point of Departure praising his pianism for the way it “synthesizes sounds and idioms with breathtaking ease.”
