Tim Berne’s Paraphrase @ Greenwich House Thursday Night

Saxophone trios have a unique equilibrium to deal with, and this rather iconic leftie outfit tickled listeners in the late 90s/early aughts by stressing fluidity above all. Sometimes they flailed to keep from sinking, sometimes they floated to enjoy the atmosphere. Then they split. So this gig is the first time in seven or eight years that Tim Berne, Drew Gress and Tom Rainey have connected, and it’s likely that the mix of pithy melodies and raucous implosions still offers the cranky grace it always did.
