Iconic saxophonist Tim Berne helped launch Sound It Out series in 2012 with a show by his hit band Snakeoil. Now he teams with bassist John Hébert – a longtime favorite of the series – for a new duo to kick off the fifth-anniversary Sound It Out @ Greenwich House season. The New York Times declared: “Few musicians working in or around jazz over the past 30 years have developed an idiomatic signature more distinctive than Tim Berne.”
Hébert – an associate of figures from Fred Hersch to Mary Halvorson to Kris Davis, as well as a leader in his own right – is one of today’s top bassists. As Michaël Attias, his cohort in Renku, says: “John has one of the most beautiful sounds of any bass player.”
