Genre: Jazz
Interesting 2-disc side project from this guitarist from Wilco. Cline is no stranger to jazz and improvisation, having recorded with several other musicians and his own projects.
Here he uses a small symphony to great effect, sliding and bending around the notes, what he calls “mood music”
