#7 Top AltJazz CDs for 2006

Nels Cline, perhaps better known as guitarist for the band Wilco, explores the compositions of jazz legend Andrew Hill and the results are stunning. Cline is joined by talented musicians like Ben Goldberg on clarinets, Andrea Parkins on electric accordion and Ornette Coleman alumnus Bobby Bradford on cornet. Set aside 25 minutes, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and listen to the album's phenomenal centerpiece, No Doubt/ 11/8 / Dance With Death.
