    Very jazz-oriented, but very cool!

    NJlo - did you manage to listen to this album yet? It's on 'Spotify' and I listened to a few tracks from I imagine is the '1st CD' and loved it ... my wife even shouted her approval from what she could hear (from the kitchen). I'll listen to more at the weekend, but so far very heavily recommended

    ... one observation is that there is a cross over with the some of things that does and Oz Noy attempts. From limited experience of both guitar players (Cline in his project, and the Oz Noy trio) I would say that there is cross over, but I much prefer the tone, melody, chops, backing band and production of Cline's work.

    for a specific example, check out: 'floored'

    Wow yeah the record is amazing! The difference really with Oz Noy is that Oz is a LOT funkier imo.. His tone is so cutting it's unbelievable. His technique is maybe a bit more traditional, but probably a bit better too. Nels is more into noise and weird stuff, not fast impressive licks or anything. Can't really say which one I like better but this stuff is really amazing! And gets me GAS'ing for a lot of pedals

    Well, upon reflection, the point of stylistic convergence is pretty narrow ... I think Nels is a more esoteric musician, and I'm not sure that he would play much 'white funk' but I understand he can play John Mcglauchlin (spelling?) stuff so I wouldn't doubt his ability to be showy. He is unorthodox for sure, but I judge technique on the noise that comes out, nothing else.

    Both however, are capable of using effects in live situation to devastating effect.

    Anyway, thanks for the link to the interview ... great stuff.
