Twins - Alex and Nels Cline: A Study in Synchronicity
For Nels and Alex Cline (an Avant-Jazz Fraternity)... this birthday celebration is only the fourth time that the twins have had the opportunity to perfrom as a duo ! ! Their blend of modern classical and new jazz combines a rigor of composition and fluency of improvisation that is simply... terribly beautiful. Melody Maker.
A few comments... Peter Erskine says: Alex Cline has a musical sensibility and sensitivity that belong to another time... when time really counted. / Rolling Stone named Nels as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. / Alex conjectured: Somehow, the idea of hearing two identical twin brothers just kind of whip it out, with total spontaneity I think might have its charm. / From All Music Guide: Alex Cline has always been more than just a drummer. He is an orchestrator of sounds. / Nels on Alex: "My brother's aesthetic has always been rather cosmic.
We are privileged to present this rarified event.
