Visitation Rites

Visitation Rites is a live album by saxophonist Tim Berne's Paraphrase which was recorded in Germany in 1996 and released on Berne's Screwgun label.[1]


The AllMusic review awarded the album 4 stars.[2] In Jazziz, Steve Dollar wrote "The music burns but it also makes sense. Juggling alto and baritone saxophones, Berne zooms between incandescent bits of overblowing and tenderly articulated phrases, upper-register soul crys and thunderclap bursts of notes, while sustaining both formidable drive and cliche-free logic".[3]
