Nels Cline-Larry Ochs-Gerald Cleaver
The addition of the exploratory guitar of Nels Cline was, for many, the kick in the ass that elevated Wilco to the ranks of the visionary. Now, the day following Jeff Tweedy's sold-out show at the Walker, we present Nels Cline in a trio with a different vision, in a more intimate setting.
Within the greater universe of sound lies the interstellar sound-space called improvised music. And it is from within this specific interstellar sound-space that music lovers discover the interplanetary system wherein Nels Cline, Gerald Cleaver, and Larry Ochs mind-meld their sonic energies for each unique concert. Expect the music to be focused and energized. Know that these sound explorers -- veterans of decades of improvised music -- will be doing their utmost to raise the bandstand, and you with it.
Guitarist Nels Cline, drummer Gerald Cleaver, and saxophonist Larry Ochs are three experimental icons, individually and collectively drawing upon the outer limits of free jazz, structured improvisation and bicoastal noise punk.
Nels Cline is most widely known as the lead guitarist for Wilco, but his experience in the forefront of musical exploration is deep and lengthy. Among his collaborations are a relatively recent series of projects with Julian Lage. He is on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
Larry Ochs is a founding member of the Rova Saxophone Quartet, one of the longest running bands in contemporary music. He has collaborated with countless great players, including Anthony Braxton, John Zorn and Henry Kaiser. He has been involved in projects with Nels Cline for over 20 years.
Gerald Cleaver came out of the fertile Detroit music scene. He has been based in NYC for over 15 years, where he has performed and recorded with Roscoe Mitchell, Matt Shipp, William Parker, Craig Taborn, Charles Gayle, Jeremy Pelt, Tomasz Stanko, Charles Lloyd and Miroslav Vitous, among others. Cleaver has released four recordings as a leader and leads the bands Black Host and Uncle June.
