Item Type: Video Duration: 113 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: ROVA

Derk Richardson interviews Los Angeles based guitarist/improviser, Nels Cline, at the Dance Mission Theater in San Francisco on March, 26, 2005. Cline talks about his early influences, including John Coltrane, Ravi Shankar, Jimi Hendrix, and Miles Davis. As a guitar player, Cline discusses the difficulties he had in incorporating the instrument into jazz music, and his gradual discovery about the similarities between the sound of Coltrane’s tenor sax and his guitar playing. Cline then plays a number of excerpts from his and Gregg Bendian’s reworking of John Coltrane’s seminal album “Interstellar Space”. Near the end of the program there is a spontaneous free improvisation with Cline and ROVA Saxophone Quartet member Larry Ochs.
