Nels Cline 4
Mon, Feb 11
Of all the rich and varied projects guitarist Nels Cline has pursued since his emergence as a leader in the late 1980s, his two-guitar duo with JULIAN LAGE, documented on the 2014 album Room, ranks among the most special. "When Julian and I started playing together it kicked my ass hard," Cline told JazzTimes around the time of Room?s release. "At the same time it inspired me and refreshed my soul." Lage, for his part, declared he had "found his people" playing with Cline: "At last I found a scenario where you could be free and adventurous, you could utilize sound and be extremely melodic and evocative."
