Our hero's superb follow up release to the critically lauded unit mover, Interstellar Space Revisited (Atavistic ALP102CD)- THIS is Nels' big band project. Rock, jazz & prog-tinged structures meet head on & careen off the guardrails; dreams are achieved in an ambitious 75:00+ time frame. He'd been building these compositions over a lengthy period of time, waiting for the stars to align properly to allow the direction & documentation of the pieces with a larger ensemble than his usual duo/trio/4tet projects. Nels sought & secured the services of electric harp goddess Zeena Parkins (fresh from recent studio sessions with Bjork), immaculate string benders G.E. Stinson, Woodward Lee Aplanalp, Carla Bozulich (Geraldine Fibbers/Scarnella), and conjoined identical twin/trapman extraordinaire Alex Cline (Interzone). The peaks & valleys generated by these avant-powerhouses on Destory have been expertly captured & mixed by Grammy-nominee Wayne Peet, Nels producer/accomplice on Interstellar Space Revisited.??With the scale, drama & intensity to rival a great feature film, Destroy all Nels Cline will likely leave fans of BIG guitar music, out-jazz, Interstellar Space Revisited & avant/prog-rock agape in it's roiling wake.
