BBC Invasion

This looks like it was a hell of a show:

It’s “The BBC,” consisting of Tim Berne, Jim Black, and Nels Cline. That page is a set of photos posted by blogger and better-photographer-than-me Laki Sideris, from the Melbourne Jazz Festival.

A full description of the festivities published by The Age uses the phrase “noise jazz” (hey, there’s a shock). The BBC was part of a larger set of performances; The Age namedrops Ethan Iverson, Bill Frisell, Charlie Haden, Scott Tinkler (cool Aussie trumpeter), and a saxophonist I haven’t heard of named Julien Wilson. Whoever he is, he hired Jim Black for his band, and that’s a good sign.
