“the unlikely guitar hero” —Los Angeles Times

Nels Cline, hit guitarist of Wilco, brings his “relentlessly exploratory approach” to free jazz with The Nels Cline Singers. Their recent album Macroscope was named “one of the best jazz releases of the year to date” by Paste magazine. The group skillfully spins washes of complex sounds with interwoven lines between Cline, the bass, drums and electronic instruments; despite the name of the group, singing is not part of the equation.
