Miles Davis Podcast: Nels Cline

Miles Davis Podcast: Nels Cline

May 26, 2010 Off By The Jazz Messenger

Guitarist Nels Cline is just electrifying to hear and watch when he is performing with Wilco. I had the pleasure of seeing him with the band at Coney Island last summer and it was nothing short of brilliant. Nels has the package: the chops, the sound, the cool guitars and the look. There is nothing he can’t do on his axe. And then there is his jazz/improv recordings with The Nels Cline Singers and other collaborations and guest appearances which are equally impressive. It is no secret that Nels has been influenced by Miles in many ways and on this podcast he goes into detail on exactly what he has taken away from the jazz master.

In A Silent Way
