Formidable guitarist Nels Cline has contributed to more than 100 recordings throughout his decades-long career. A member of the Grammy Award-winning band Wilco since 2004, the virtuoso burst onto the music scene in the early 1980s as a jazz player. Forays into punk and alt-rock followed, earning Cline a spot on Rolling Stone’s 2007 Top 20 New Guitar Gods list. Blessed with comparable guitar chops, former child prodigy Julian Lage is, at 26, a seemingly unlikely musical counterpart to Cline, 32 years his senior. Nevertheless, the duo dazzles music lovers with selections from their duo album, ROOM, alongside interludes of awe-inspiring improvisation.
