One night in June 2002, Bay Area-based drummer Scott Amendola finished recording the tracks for Cry, his second album as a bandleader. He and guitarist Nels Cline (who would join Wilco two years later) sat in the control room afterward. Commenting on the wide variety of material on Cry, Cline...

Nels Cline on why he fronts a jazz band in addition to playing for Wilco

2 years ago by Jon Solomon
Guitar wiz Nels Cline says he used to envy people who could stick to one genre, like musicians who'd say, "All I do is play swing, or all I do is play bluegrass, or all I do is play prepared guitar." But for Cline, due tonight at Dazzle, focusing on...

Medeski, Martin and Wood may record for Blue Note, the most venerable of jazz labels, but the trio's music is practically impossible to describe without using a hyphen: Sometimes it's jazz-soul, sometimes it's jazz-funk, sometimes it's jazz-hip-hop, and sometimes it's an ultra-cool orgy of all this and more, more, more...
