Ars Nova Workshop Presents: Snakeoil
$15 General Admission
Ars Nova Workshop is pleased to welcome the Philadelphia return of Tim Berne’s Snakeoil for a very special performance celebrating the release of their new recording, Shadow Man, on ECM Records.
“Based on the recorded evidence, it may very well have been Tim Berne who was the definitive genius of NYC’s downtown 1980s jazz scene,” Time Out New York opined. “In the intervening years, he has remained committed to exploring the small group jazz idiom with a series of gritty, head-turning bands that have helped propel younger players such as Jim Black, Craig Taborn and Ches Smith into alt-jazz stardom”.
