Named the 82nd greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine, jazzmaster assassin Nels Cline might be as close as the modern avant-garde gets to a household name. Before joining indie rock institution Wilco in 2004, Cline divided his energy between improvised contexts alongside Julius Hemphill, Vinny Golia, and brother Alex, and more song-oriented settings like Carla Bozulich’s alt-country outfit Geraldine Fibbers and Mike Watt’s Crew of the Flying Saucer. Cline continues to occupy the narrow space between pure sound and song, as exemplified by his his mood orchestral project Lovers, his longstanding Singers trio with drummer Scott Amendola and bassist Trevor Dunn, and his recent duo with guitar prodigy Julian Lage.

For the past several years Nels has collaborated with bassist and composer Chris Lightcap in a variety of contexts, from Cline's Ring Nebula project, to his Trio Hadarro which performed at the 2018 Festival FRUE in Japan. He also guests on Lightcap's acclaimed 2018 avant/afro/surf release, "Superette," along with organist John Medeski. Lightcap has lent his huge sound, propulsive groove and creative vision to an impressively wide-ranging array of artists including Craig Taborn, Marc Ribot, Regina Carter, Tomasz Stanko, Joe Morris and Matt Wilson, and also leads an acclaimed two-tenor band, Bigmouth. Superette and Bigmouth have recently morphed into a new 8 piece behemoth, SuperBigmouth which will be released in the fall of 2019.

Since 2016 they have performed as a duo in which they explore many of Cline's originals as well as gems by Carla Bley, Paul Motian, Charlie Haden, and Ron Carter.
