Guitarist Julian Lage is no stranger to the big time. Featured in the award-winning documentary Jules at Eight, the now 33-year just released in June his first album with Blue Note, Squint.
Dick Young first introduced me to guitarist Lage through the music of legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton in the recording Generations and I’ve been hooked ever since.
There’s a special moment in the documentary when eight-year-old Lage talks about practice. He says he plays the guitar every day and has been since he was around five, except for one day. That day his family had to take a trip and he couldn’t bring his guitar, so he didn’t play that day. And with the innocence of a child says he wishes he had that day back. That day bugs me he says. His dad comments that they need to try and get Julian not to play his guitar. Below is a clip from the documentary:
And now at age 33, here’s Lage’s latest release, Squint, with bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer Dave King. Enjoy.
