"Violinist Jeff Gauthier's release Open Source is his sixth CD as a leader. His ensemble of almost 20 years, The Jeff Gauthier Goatette features guitarist Nels Cline, his twin brother Alex Cline on drums and percussion, John Fumo on trumpet, David Witham on piano and keyboards, and Joel Hamilton on bass. Gauthier's music draws from as many influences as the title Open Source suggests. Open Source is a mature work by a musician who values human interaction in music making above all else."-Cryptogramophone

Artist Biographies:

"Nels Courtney Cline (born January 4, 1956 in Los Angeles) is an American guitarist and composer. He has been the guitarist for the band Wilco since 2004.

He first came to prominence in the 1980s playing jazz, often in collaboration with his twin brother Alex Cline, a drummer. Since then, he has worked with a wide range of musicians in punk and alternative rock, notably Mike Watt and Thurston Moore. He also leads the groups the Nels Cline Singers and Nels Cline Trio.

Cline was named the 82nd greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine in November 2011."
