Listen to WTJU for a recorded interview that Gary Funston recently conducted with guitartist Nels Cline about his upcoming appearance at the Paramount Theater on June 6th. The interview will be broadcast Saturday night during Living Time, and rebroadcast Wednesday morning on Left of Cool.

Nels Cline is one of the most versatile, imaginative and original guitarists active today. Combining breathtaking technique with an informed musical intelligence, Cline displays a mastery of guitar expression that encompasses delicate lyricism, sonic abstractions, and skull-crunching flights of fancy, inspiring Jazz Times to call him, "The World's Most Dangerous Guitarist."

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." S.F. Weekly
