“Julian Lage is the sort of musician who makes every gesture feel both easeful and essential.” —NPR
As one of the most prodigious guitarists of his generation, Julian Lage has long displayed an ability to explore a wide range of sounds, ideas, and genres. With his trio, offset by Scott Colley on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums, these sounds are given the room to wander in two intimate FlynnSpace performances. Ostensibly straightforward guitar lines reach unforeseen conclusions, and in Lage’s maze of melodic enigmas, rhythm hides in plain sight. At 30, Lage, a Burlington Discover Jazz Festival alum, has a full-length career already behind him, though he continues searching for seemingly absent boundaries.
