Nels Cline Singers Are At Le Poisson Rouge Tonight

Nels Cline in Central Park, from the HAD Archive

We'll be the first to admit that our exposure to Nels Cline is firmly rooted in his association with Wilco. However, that does nothing to change the fact that the man is a guitar badass who has a list of musical projects almost too long to comprehend. We caught him last summer at Central Park with Floored By Four, and now the man is back in town with his band The Nels Cline Singers.

The group has a new disc out, Initiate (cover above), and will be delivering two sets (7PM and 9:30PM) tonight at Le Poisson Rouge. While we haven't seen them since a couple of years back in San Francisco, wbut suffice it to say: if you have any interest in modern jazz performance, you certainly won't be disappointed.
