The Nels Cline Singers: Share the Wealth

Read "Share the Wealth" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


L'idea era di registrare delle lunghe improvvisazioni per poi selezionare frammenti, operare un copia-incolla di davisiana memoria e dar vita ad una sorta di mosaico/collage psichedelico. L'ascolto del materiale registrato, la percezione della magia sprigionata dalle sessions e della unicità dei brani hanno cambiato le carte in tavola e suggerito di pubblicare integralmente, senza sforbiciate, quello ...

Mike Jurkovic's Best Releases Of 2020

Read "Mike Jurkovic's Best Releases Of 2020" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Here we are on the heels of Annus Horriblis still clinging to traditions both minuscule and grand like year end best of lists. So in the spirit of the season and survival, here's a 2020 playlist. Listen to these in this order or random play and perhaps the year in retrospect won't appear so damn bad. ...

The Nels Cline Singers: Share The Wealth

Read "Share The Wealth" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Guitarist Nels Cline has led the Nels Cline Singers since 2002. While they have sometimes had guest performers on their recordings, the core band has been a trio of Cline, drummer Scott Amendola and bassist Trevor Dunn (originally Devin Hoff). This album expands the group to a sextet with the addition of saxophonist Skerik, keyboardist Brian ...

Nels Cline and Julian Lage: Room

Read "Room" reviewed by Paul Naser


Serious fans of guitar may have heard of both Nels Cline and Julian Lage, but many listeners more likely know only one or the other of these guitar giants. The two innovators have very different styles and sounds. Cline is known primarily for his work with Wilco and The Nels Cline Singers, where his compositions function ...

The Nels Cline Singers: Macroscope

Read "Macroscope" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


La luminosa carriera di Nels Cline è talmente ben consolidata che non serve alcuna conferma. Ma se per caso qualcuno si fosse distratto negli ultimi trent'anni, arriva oggi un segnale che non si può ignorare: con questo Macroscope il chitarrista californiano riafferma il suo posto di riguardo nella lista dei dieci chitarristi più interessanti della sua ...

The Nels Cline Singers: Macroscope

Read "Macroscope" reviewed by Troy Collins


Macroscope is a first for guitarist Nels Cline's ironically named band, The Nels Cline Singers, in more ways than one. The group's four previous albums were released by the notoriously adventurous Cryptogramophone label, so it is somewhat surprising to see the amplified power trio's latest endeavor issued by the relatively mainstream Mack Avenue imprint. More importantly, ...

The Nels Cline Singers: Macroscope

Read "The Nels Cline Singers: Macroscope" reviewed by Matt Marshall


With the release of this album by The Nels Cline Singers, Detroit's Mack Avenue Records takes a bold leap into the outer fringes of jazz. Their impressive slate of artists already included the likes of Kenny Garrett, Sean Jones and Christian McBride, who are open to pushing jazz boundaries, but the label had no one who ...

Slumgum: Quardboard Flavored Fiber

Read "Quardboard Flavored Fiber" reviewed by Dave Wayne


While it's true that a really great band is capable of expanding its listeners' musical vocabularies, it turns out that this LA-based quartet's name is also a vocabulary-builder in the literal sense. Slumgum is actually a real word that refers to the waste products from beekeeping operations. Those with the good fortune to hear either of ...

The Nels Cline Singers: Initiate

Read "Initiate" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Nels Cline è molto di più che non il chitarrista dei Wilco. La sua lunga avventura musicale è una dimostrazione chiarissima di una classe cristallina e di una grande abilità nel manipolare i generi musicali. Sempre con la stella polare dell'improvvisazione e dell'avanguardia ben salda in mezzo al cielo, a indicare la strada. Ogni sua prova ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
