The addition of the exploratory guitar of Nels Cline was, for many, the kick in the ass that elevated Wilco to the ranks of the visionary. Now, the day following Jeff Tweedy’s sold-out show at the Walker, we present Nels Cline in a trio with a different vision, in a more intimate setting.
Within the greater universe of sound lies the interstellar sound-space called improvised music.
