David Torn
Saxophonist Tim Berne, drummer Ches Smith and guitarist David Torn push far beyond jazz’s
known boundaries in Sun of Goldfinger. The mercurial trio explores the edges of the genre,
infusing it with perspectives ranging from the minimalist to the cinematic to the metallic. The
improvisation-based group effortlessly, seamlessly shifts from atmospheres into shattering
mayhem to thrilling effect.

the prestigious ECM label. Berne has forged a singular path across dozens of expansive,
diverse albums featuring intricately-detailed, harmony-driven works. Torn’s influence as a
guitarist, composer and music technologist is epic. With sounds ranging from the searing and
soaring to liquid loops to full-on shredding, he’s reinvented conventional definitions of guitar.
Smith has established himself as one of the world’s premier percussionists, combining acoustic
invention with electronics to both propel and extend his myriad musical surroundings.
Together, these leaders and friends combine as a democratic unit, determined to take
