Two articles for the debut of My Favorite World. What can I say? I’m enthusiastic.
Nels Cline and Julian Lage
Mack Avenue Records
Nels Cline is a 58 year old, self-described “fake jazz” guitarist known most widely for his membership in the band Wilco. Julian Lage is a 26 year old jazz phenom, the heir apparent to Jim Hall, with unmatched technique and harmonic sophistication. “Room” is their first recording together; if we’re lucky, it won’t be the last.
