On Nels Cline’s 3rd Blue Note release Share The Wealth, the sonic explorer and guitar renegade delivers a potent and provocative program of spontaneous, uncompromising, and ultimately compelling music with an expanded edition of his long-running project The Nels Cline Singers featuring saxophonist and punk-jazz iconoclast Skerik, keyboard marvel Brian Marsella, bass powerhouse Trevor Dunn, longtime collaborator and drummer Scott Amendola, and Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista. Together they revel in swirling, evocative soundscapes brimming with ferocious skronking and uninhibited stretching on this dynamic double album.

Nels Cline’s super-eclectic CV is like an ode to experimentation. At nearly 65 years old, the Californian guitarist has worked with artists as varied as Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth, Tim Berne, singer Rickie Lee Jones, saxophonist Julius Hemphill and Wayne Kramer from MC5. He’s one of those fascinating guitarists on the fringe. Like Marc Ribot or Arto Lindsay, he manipulates sounds, rules and preconceived ideas. Navigating the avant-garde waters of jazz and rock, Nels Cline has been the lead guitarist of Wilco since 2004. Though the full-time job hasn’t stopped him regularly treating himself to other excursions. Like Share The Wealth, which he has released with The Nels Cline Singers, his most audacious band. ‘Singers’ is a bit misleading since there are none. We find ten punk-tinged jazz themes set to electronic soundscapes. These peaceful terrorists are influenced by a whole range of styles (the album opens with a cover of Caetano Veloso’s Segunda!) and they sound a bit like a drunken Os Mutantes or an alternative Weather Report. Cline is joined by his inspired and unruly bandmates – the saxophonist Skerik, keyboardist Brian Marsella, supercharged bassist Trevor Dunn, drummer Scott Amendola and Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista. They play with melodies, alternating between improvisations (like Stump The Panel, a trippy rollercoaster ride lasting over 17 minutes) and more floaty, dreamlike atmospheres (Passed Down). All you need to do is sit back and let yourself be carried away by this hypnotic torrent of ever-audacious-never-complacent notes. – Marc Zisman
