In December of last year, Medeski, Martin and Wood teamed up with Wilco guitarist Nels Cline for a couple of very well-received shows at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City. Cline also joined the group for a special performance at Wilco’s Solid Sound this summer as well.
In an exciting development, it now looks like the Medeski, Martin, Wood and Cline collaboration will be taken to the next level. MMW just posted a mostly context-free photo of Cline working with the band in the studio.
A few details have emerged about the project, including a September 13 tweet from producer Kevin Salem that reads, “Mixing MMW with Nels Cline. Pretty crazy guitar playing.” It also appears that the session took place last month at Applehead Studios in Woodstock, NY.
We’ll keep you posted on this very interesting collaboration as soon as we have more information.
