David Torn, electric guitar
Tim Berne, alto saxophone
Ches Smith, drums & vibraphone

A wide-ranging and innovative composer, texturalist, guitarist and producer, David Torn (aka splattercell) is renowned for his unique musical voice, which seems to span and un-define a range of idioms and styles. Sun of Goldfinger reunites him with saxophonist Tim Berne and drummer Ches Smith, with whom he’s worked as producer of Berne’s ECM releases. The trio play a sonically venturesome brand of free improvisation that veers into uncategorizable electronic textures and communication on the fringes of avant-garde jazz.
