Nels featured extensively on new Joan Osborne album

Recommended Posts

I saw on Nels' Instagram page that he was playing on the new Joan Osborne album Trouble and Strife.  I had never heard her music, aside from What If God Was One of Us?, so I didn't know what to expect.


Anyway, Nels does some fine playing on this record, and has a few solo spots that are very satisfying to hear.  My opinion is that Wilco has underutilized him in recent years, using him on the records mainly as a background/ambient sounds, with only the occasional moments where he gets to come up to the surface, so to speak, so it's nice to hear him play some traditional lead and rhythm guitar in a pop/rock format. 


When listening. I was convinced Glenn was also on some of these songs, but that is apparently not the case.  The drummer is Aaron Comess from Spin Doctors, playing in a very Kotche-esque style, at least on some of the songs.
