"A native Californian who grew up in Santa Barbara, drummer Tom Rainey moved to New York City in 1979 while in his early twenties (after studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston starting in 1975 and then returning to California to live in San Francisco). The new resident of Brooklyn kicked around town with some straight-ahead jazz gigs in the early '80s and began playing in a trio with pianist Kenny Werner and bassist Ratzo Harris (having first encountered the latter at a California music camp), and in the early to mid-'80s met and started gigging with saxophonist Tim Berne, although Rainey would not appear on a recording with Berne until Big Satan's I Think They Liked It Honey, recorded live in Paris in 1996. But in the interim, Rainey made a lasting impression on discs by Werner, Jane Ira Bloom, Fred Hersch, Mark Helias, Tom Varner, Ray Anderson, Andy Laster, New and Used, and others, before live and studio dates with Berne began taking up a larger portion of his schedule. On a number of recordings -- including albums by the Fred Hersch Trio and Paraphrase (the latter featuring Berne on saxophones) -- Rainey was paired with bassist Drew Gress, forming an empathetic bass-drums tandem heard on a number of notable avant and modern creative jazz discs."-All Music
