|Guitarist Nels Cline calls his new trio The Nels Cline Singers even though there are no singers in the band. He calls the album, Instrumentals... well, because there are no singers in the band. These Singers feature the protean musical skills of Devin Hoff on contrabass, and Scott Amendola on drums and electronics. Then of course there's Nels' amazing guitar work, which has inspired Jazz Times to call him, 'The World's Most Dangerous Guitarist.'
“Astonishingly intense and completely brilliant, it seems clear that Cline is now up there with the most creative jazz-based guitarists in the world.” –Motion UK
“Cline’s playing channels the spirit of Coltrane with a rare intensity, which seems to spring from the same well Jimi Hendrix would have drawn from had he survived to realize his post-rock aspirations.” –SF Weekly
