A free Nels Cline download

Here’s a bit of unfinished business. I’ve been meaning to point you to this FREE MP3 for nearly two years. Just kept slipping my mind.

Nels Cline is a gifted and versatile guitarist who plays the jazz, plays the rock, and plays the experimental music.

“Caved-In Heart Blues” has the slowest tempo of any tune I’ve ever heard... or it feels like that anyway. With a lot of open space. I think there’s something magical about it all.

This track is from Cline’s 2007 album “Draw Breath.” (He’s got a new CD out called “Coward.”)

Click here to hear “Caved-In Heart Blues” on my Vox blog. To download it, click the song title below.

He also plays with Wilco and helped tear up a great set at Jazz Fest last weekend.

Ahh, Jazz Fest. One of these years I'll make it.

I've never heard Wilco's music.

@ UBM - Dang, you left right before it started! You definitely need to check it out; between the food and the music choices, there's nothing like it.

Wlico may not be in your musical wheelhouse, but they are a talented outfit and worth checking out.
