An all-star project which debuted in 2017, Tim Berne's Broken Shadows is named after one of Ornette Coleman’s most evocative compositions. This group also honors the music of Coleman’s fellow Fort Worth native reed players, Dewey Redman and Julius Hemphill. Featuring Berne on alto saxophone; Chris Speed on tenor saxophone & clarinet; and Bad Plus band members, Reid Anderson, bass and Dave King, drums, the band has been described as a “remarkably balanced vehicle for performing Coleman’s work, approaching it with fearless experimentation, deep grooves, and wicked humor,” and WBGO radio declared, “Broken Shadows approaches their music with a profound conviction but also a perceptible spirit of play.” Emerging as a major talent from New York’s experimental Downtown scene of the late 1970s, Tim Berne was a student of Julius Hemphill. He has led nearly 40 albums and collaborated with a wide variety of exploratory musicians, from Bill Frisell and Paul Motian to Nels Cline and many others. Chris Speed is a three-time DownBeat Poll winner for his work on clarinet, and is a founding member of the Claudia Quintet. Reid Anderson and Dave King have recorded a dozen albums as members of the wildly successful Bad Plus, they also have extensive careers as bandleaders and sidemen.
