I included Nels Cline and Julian Lage’s Room in my Notable releases of 2014 list. It’s quite a stunning album of guitar duets. Here’s an audience video and a Fretboard Journal interview.

Fretboard Journal Live: Nels Cline and Julian Lage
“On January 14, 2015, the Fretboard Journal welcomed guitarists Julian Lage and Nels Cline (Wilco) to our headquarters for this installment of Fretboard Journal Live. Lage and Cline discuss how they met through jazz legend Jim Hall; they talk about the gear they’re using for their duo gigs (a Gibson Barney Kessel Custom for Cline; a Linda Manzer archtop for Lage); and they discuss the art of improvisation.
Cline and Lage perform three tunes from ‘Room,’ their debut album together.”
