Current members of Wilco tour together for a night of collaboration and solo works.
Heralded by The Chicago Tribune for his "unfailing taste, technique and discipline," Chicago based percussionist Glenn Kotche's exploration of rhythm and space began in childhood in Roselle, Illinois. His interests and efforts landed him at the University of Kentucky's highly-regarded percussion program. Following graduation, Kotche's various stints with groups and ensembles resulted in participation on more than 70 recordings to date. In 2001, he joined the rock band, Wilco. Since joining as drummer/percussionist, Wilco's accomplishments include the gold-selling album “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” and the Grammy-winning “A ghost is born”.
Beyond Wilco, Kotche is also one-third of experimental rock trio, Loose Fur, along with Wilco band mate Jeff Tweedy and post-classical composer/producer Jim O'Rourke, which released their self-titled album in 2003. He is half of jazz, experimental duo, On Fillmore, with bassist Darin Gray. Their latest recording, “Sleeps with Fishes”, landed them at the prestigious 2005 Percussion Pan Festival in Brazil.
Kotche has released two previous solo works, “Introducing” and “Next”. His third solo effort, “Mobile”, will be released in early 2006, on Nonesuch Records.

He spent much of the late 70s-80s, recording with Vinny Golia, Tim Berne, Julius Hemphill, among others, while playing with the acoustic chamber jazz collective Quartet Music, alongside bassist Charlie Haden, a group he continued with for 11 years.
By the 90s, Nels returned to rock music, leading Nels Cline Trio, while playing in the band, BLOC and recording/performing with Mike Watt, Thurston Moore, Devin Sarno, The Geraldine Fibbers (Carla Bozulich). Cline maintained his jazz interests, performing and recording with jazz artists such as Bobby Bradford, Mark Isham, Jessica Lurie, Scott Amendola Band, Vinny Golia Quintet, Gregg Bendian's Interzone, and more. Since 1979, Nels has recorded on over 100 records.

He also performs and records with the Scott Amendola Band, ROVA Saxophone Quartet's Orkestrova, Wally Shoup, Thurston Moore, Carlos Giffoni, Carla Bozulich, and many others.
