BB&C, The Veil

February 13, 2012

BB&C are alto saxophonist Tim Berne, drummer Jim Black, and guitarist Nels Cline, captured here playing an all-improvised show on a sweltering summer night at The Stone in NYC. The music is described as “genrebending metal-jazz” in the press release, but in addition to the intensely driving, cathartic sonic onslaughts implied therein, there are stretches of great subtlety and sublime beauty—and Cline’s preternatural improvisational abilities, interstellar spectrum of musical expression, and uncanny effects deployment are fully unveiled. Cryptogramophone.
