Tim Berne (born 1954) is an American jazz saxophone player and composer.

    Stumbled upon him while searching for [artist]Erik Friedlander[/artist]-related stuff. His piece Insomnia really is a gathering of wonderful musicians as well as great ideas, straight from the mind and heart of those people. Incredible stuff.

    Tim is no. 1 in my jazz pantheon. I don't think there's ever been anyone in the history of jazz who's done so much groundbreaking music so consistently for such a long time. 30 years and still blowing minds, including my mind for the past 17. The man is an icon of quality, creativity and independence.
