Nels Cline is a genre-transcending guitar hero who has worked with an impossibly wide range of artists, including Bill Frisell, Sonic Youth’s anti-rock icons Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, and country-punk-poets the Geraldine Fibbers. Cline’s solo work is equally varied—from the lovely acoustic adventures of 2000’s The Inkling to his daring interpretation of John Coltrane’s Interstellar Space to his consistently provocative instrumental soundscaping with the Nels Cline Singers. In addition to his gig with Wilco, Kotche has played with Loose Fur (featuring Jeff Tweedy and Jim O’Rourke), and On Fillmore, an experimental jazz duo with bassist Darin Gray.
GP associate editor Barry Cleveland says, “Nels Cline is a genius. I’ve seen him perform numerous times, and whether its playing his own material, grooving with Banyon, or covering jazz classics by Andrew Hill, his playing is always as astonishing.” In his March 2005 GP cover story Cline told Cleveland, “Perhaps by not being a jobber musician and playing music that I don’t like, I’ve been able to maintain a childlike pleasure out of making sound.”
Music-minded thrill seekers should certainly enjoy the flights of improvisation, soulful sonic sculptures, and cliché-killing songcraft that Cline and Kotche will bring to the belly of Market Street on the last Monday in February.
