Tim Berne's Snakeoil

Earshot Jazz says
Tim Berne's third ECM album, "You've Been Watching Me," sees the saxophonist-composer again leading his dynamic New York band Snaekoil, now a quintet with the arrival of guitarist Ryan Ferreira. Just as Berne has hit a new peak with his writing on "You've Been Watching Me," his band has reached a heightened state of collective interaction, realizing the compositions to a tee. Snakeoil - with the leader on alto sax alongside pianist Matt Mitchell, clarinetist Oscar Noriega, percussionist Ches Smith, and Ferreira on electric and acoustic guitars - can still be bracingly kinetic. But there is new space in these compositions and more lyrical focus to the improvisations, leading to a dynamic, even cinematic experience.
