Nels Cline: a guitarist’s guitarist

From The Irish Times:

Cline has a reputation as long as a very long arm, and an equally lengthy list of collaborative projects, the latest of which is BB&C (made up of Tim Berne, Jim Black and Cline), which makes its debut in Ireland this week. Rock fans may know him best as the freewheeling guitarist in Wilco (which he joined in 2004), but, to a different subset of aficionados, Cline is the go-to guy, the free jazz/avant gardist guitarist’s guitarist.
