David Torn+Tim Berne & Matt Mitchell
Three nights of precision and excursion. Torn, the intrepid string experimentalist, seldom plays unaccompanied, so this solo shot is a treat. Check his one-man TEDx Talks guitar and oud combo and you'll know that there are more textural string sounds around than you ever figured. Berne and Mitchell have a deep rapport at this late date; the pianist boasts a definite affinity for his mentor's swoops and gallops. Dessert features a trio romp that should show a novel simpatico.
