Tim Berne's Snakeoil - Clutter

Making his first appearance in these parts in a couple decades, saxophonist Tim Berne brought Snakeoil (Oscar Noriega, clarinets; Matt Mitchell, piano; Ches Smith, percussion and vibes) which has just released its second album as a unit. Despite possibly feeling at less than his best (splitting headaches and border troubles were both mentioned), Berne led the group through several excursions, the pieces sling-shotting from more composed, quiet interludes to fiery improvisational blasts.
