APPROXIMATELY NELS CLINE is Steven Okazaki's first music documentary. It features Nels Cline, best known as the lead guitarist of Wilco and one of the most brilliant and adventurous musicians on earth. Produced in collaboration with Fantasy Studios, the film includes performances by The Nels Cline Singers’ Scott Amendola (drums) and Devin Hoff (bass), with special guests Carla Kihlstedt (vocals and violin), Ron Miles (trumpet), Yuka Honda (electronica), Ben Goldberg (clarinet) and Matthias Bossi (percussion).
“It's not a typical music documentary,” says Okazaki. “It's about musicianship and the collaborative hard work of playing great music.”
