AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Nels Cline & Julian Lage

Artist:Nels Cline & Julian Lage
Song:Odd End

Guitarist Nels Cline has been around since the 80s. He is best known as a member of Wilco and for his jazz group The Nels Cline Singers. But he does all kinds of other things. On this 2014 CD, he is recording with the much younger Julian Lage. Cline has recorded jazz and rock since the 80s. He joined Wilco in 2004 and along with recording and touring with them, he also leads the jazz group The Nels Cline Singers. Julian Lage was a child prodigy and the subject of the 1997 documentary Julian At Eight. Lage has recorded as a leader but he's a member of Gary Burton's New Quartet and he works a lot as a sideman. These guys are so busy one wouldn't think there would be time to record an album together. Cline says he was burned out from touring and recording with Lage refreshed him. The 2014 CD Room is just the two guitarists. There's no band. So fans of Cline and Lage as individuals should check this album out as the two work very well together. Cline and Lage did a media tour and a few gigs. This album could be a one shot deal as they might not have time to work together again. This is recommended to jazz guitar fans. Here's Nels Cline & Julian Lage performing Odd End at KEXP in Seattle 2014.
