Julian Lage

Julian Lage

The profound musicality and stellar technique of Julian Lage will be on display in the Cole Auditorium on Sunday, Oct. 18, at 3:30 p.m. This New York City based composer & arranger is in the front ranks of contemporary jazz guitarists. Lage will be joined by bassist Scott Colley and drummer, Kenny Wolleson; both acclaimed musicians with impressive recording and performing resumes.

Recent albums with pianist Fred Hersch and iconoclastic guitarist, Nels Cline, as well as a May 2015 cover story for Jazz Times magazine have enhanced public awareness of this abundantly gifted 27 year old.

Lage was the subject of an Academy Award nominated documentary Jules at Eight, highlighting his challenges and accomplishments as a youthful jazz prodigy. Among others, Julian has collaborated with Jim Hall, Mark O’Connor, Nels Cline, Chris Eldridge, Scott Colley & Antonio Sanchez. In addition to his own quintet he has recorded with Gary Burton, David Grisman, Eric Harland, Anthony Wilson, Martin Taylor, Joshua Bell & Yoko Ono.

Julian’s album Sounding Point was nominated for a Best Contemporary Jazz album Grammy in 2010. His most recent duo album, Free Flying with Fred Hersch, received a coveted five star review in Down Beat magazine.

The Julian Lage Trio is an improvising ensemble featuring electric guitar, acoustic bass, and drums. Playing original music as well as standards of the American jazz and folk traditions, the Julian Lage Trio draws influence from modern jazz guitar trio of Jim Hall as well as operating as sonic laboratory for exploring the integration of acoustic and electric instruments in an improvising context.
