Ken Pickering Interviews Tim Berne

Source: Coastal Jazz.

At this stage of the game it feels like I’ve known Tim Berne (as a friend and long time fan) for a huge swath of my adult life. The story began sometime around the end of the 70’s back when we were both in our 20’s. I had my record shop (Black Swan) and produced small creative music concerts while Tim had moved to Brooklyn (after college in Oregon) and was studying with the legendary saxophonist/composer Julius Hemphill.
