Nels Cline biography
Guitarist and composer Nels Cline (born in Los Angeles in 1956)began to play guitar at age 12. He founded his first rock band (with brother Alex) when studied in University High School (Los Angeles, California). Later he played with such jazz musician as Charlie Haden and Wadada Leo Smith.

Cline has also performed and recorded with punk rock bassist Mike Watt in his touring bands The Crew of the Flying Saucer and The Black Gang, as well as with members of Sonic Youth and country music legend Willie Nelson, and in the jazz/punk/improv band Banyan with Watt and ex-Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins. In the late 1980s, Cline formed the Nels Cline Trio with Mark London Sims at bass and Michael Preussner at drums. In 1988 he recorded first solo album "Angelica". With trio Nels recorded three more album with more melodic and accessible compositions.

His collaboration with drummer Gregg Bendian was released in 1999 as Coltrane interpretations album "Interstellar Space Revisited: The Music of John Coltrane". In a New Millennium Nels founded improv/free jazz ensemble The Nels Cline Singers (without vocals) and released 4 albums with them. Near that, from 2004 he joined rock band Wilco as guitarist, participated on two band's albums.

The music he plays is as wide as country-punk and improv-jazz, with influences of Brazilian and African rhythms, space jazz and myriads other pop, rock and jazz experimental streams.

Damsel - Distressed
Nels Cline Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by snobb
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
3 stars Album of 4 improvs recorded in one session. Released under "Damsel" name, but in fact it's Nels Cline and drummer Zach Hill duo (with some support from bassist Jonathan Hischke).

Nels Cline played that time as Wilco member, and drummer Zach Hill - as Hella member. One day both bands were in Chicago, and Nels and Zach just recorded short session of their improvs there.

The result is very free-form well organized music/noise chaos. Hill's drumming is extremely technical and complex, and Cline's guitar sounds far from what you're expecting from just usual fusion guitar sound. Somewhere on very border between experimental fusion and avant-garde, this album is interesting listening for very experimental music lovers. Great technique, complex rhythm structures - and pure improvs. Don't expect melodies or any formal composition there though.
