Nels Cline, Tim Berne and Jim Black To Release Live Improvised Album
The next record by Wilco guitarist Nels Cline is set for a June 7 release. On The Veil, Cline is joined by alto saxophonist Tim Berne and drummer Jim Black in a trio known as BB&C (also sometimes called Sons of Champignon). This release presents music drawn from two improvised sets which took place at John Zorn’s The Stone before an audience that included Mike Watt and Yuka Honda (the band notes, “For convenience, track numbers have been added and song names assigned within two largely continuous excursions”). At present the group has not confirmed any dates in support of this album but one imagines that such a show or shows will follow.
