  • by Jazz at the Library on Oct 4, 2010 at 5:04:46 PM Some Surprising Influences

    I'm mostly familiar with guitarist Nesl Cline from his work with alt-country/noise band Wilco, and it was quite a surprise to run across this episode of "Piano Jazz" featuring the Nels Cline Singers. Why? Well, Nels is a guitarist, and his work with Wilco has been described as "shredding" -- meaning his solos are usually blistering -- and loud. Oh, and there are no singers in the Nels Cline Singers either. And the show is "Piano Jazz" --??? But the biggest surprise for me was all the jazz masters who Nels says have influenced his work -- guitarists like Ralph Towner, John McLaughlin and Jim Hall, and pianist Bill Evans. Quite the pedigree! Check out the show here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130266570
