Podcast 80: Nels Cline and Julian Lage

In this hour-long interview, Nels Cline (Wilco) and Julian Lage sit down to talk to us about their fateful meeting (thanks to a lunch date with the late jazz great Jim Hall), the art of the guitar duo, gear (Cline is playing a Gibson Barney Kessel here; Lage is playing his Linda Manzer archtop) and much more. We also hear three tunes from Room, the pair’s debut album. This interview features the audio tracks from our Fretboard Journal Live session with the duo, the FJ‘s live streamed video series.
