Sun of Gldfinger: David Torn, Tim Berne, Ches Smith

Tue March 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$20 – $25

“Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 8pm, the NYC-based band Sun of Goldfinger featuring David Torn (guitar, electronics), Tim Berne (alto sax), and Ches Smith (percussion, electronics) will perform at ALL. Sun of Goldfinger is releasing a new album on the ECM label in March 2019. Tickets are $20 in advance at https://goldfinger.bpt.me and $25 at the door. Student tickets are $5 off with valid school ID. Advance tickets are available online until 1 hour before the show. Doors open at 7:30pm.

Saxophonist Tim Berne, drummer Ches Smith and guitarist David Torn push far beyond jazz’s known boundaries in Sun of Goldfinger. The mercurial trio explores the edges of the genre, infusing it with perspectives ranging from the minimalist to the cinematic to the metallic. The improvisation-based group effortlessly, seamlessly shifts from atmospheres into shattering mayhem to thrilling effect.

All three musicians are renowned bandleaders in their own right, with current solo recordings on the prestigious ECM label. Berne has forged a singular path across dozens of expansive, diverse albums featuring intricately-detailed, harmony-driven works. Torn’s influence as a guitarist, composer and music technologist is epic. With sounds ranging from the searing and soaring to liquid loops to full-on shredding, he’s reinvented conventional definitions of guitar. Smith has established himself as one of the world’s premier percussionists, combining acoustic invention with electronics to both propel and extend his myriad musical surroundings.

Together, these leaders and friends combine as a democratic unit, determined to take audiences on a singular journey through provocative sonic territory known and unknown. This is the future of jazz. This is Sun of Goldfinger.
