    I dig it. I tried sort of breaking through some kind of barrier myself. My band was Straight Arrow. I listed myself as Robert Barrow for professional reasons. Anyway, tip of the hat to brother Lage.

    That kid is just a freaking monster. Everything he plays, from the most lyrical jazz, to the prettiest acoustic almost bluegrass, to this kind of out stuff, whether on his own or with Nels Cline or someone. I'm not sure he quite has his own distinctive style yet, because he can play EVERYTHING so well, and maybe that's the way he'll stay. Or maybe someday you'll hear something and know immediately it's Julian Lage...

    It's weird, angular, edgy and has a total disregard for being accessible to the listener.

    In other words, I really like it.

    The guy is crazy talented but I can't listen to it for more than a couple minutes. Just not my thing.

    I saw him a couple weeks ago and after 1.5 hrs -- the length of the gig -- I felt a bit bludgeoned with the thickness of his ideas! I, OTOH, can play a 3hr gig and not have even 1/8 of the depth of his ideas :)

    Sounds a lot like the Eleventh House when Larry was going through his Hendrix phase.

    Really, listen to my clip of Air Strike above. I was mining this territory in 1974. This one is whole-tone--not to brag but how many rock bands were using that? Granted, I was a long way from Lage at that point, but I was 21. (BTW, see my thread in the theory forum about stingy semitones.)

    Sorry to interject my own stuff into this thread, but thought a comparison might be interesting to somebody besides myself. The beautiful woman on the people mover in the Denver Airport is my beautiful wife.

    There might be a few pieces I'd recognize him on, but he plays such a wide variety of styles that I know I'd get it wrong the majority of the time...

    This sounds like garbage to me, but his stuff with Chris Eldridge is outstanding.

    Sounds like he's practicing on a lengthy noodle session to me.
    If I hadn't heard he was a Jazz guy i'd almost think he's just making a lot of mistakes.
    I like my pentatonic noodling with a mistake ratio of around no more than 10%.

    I saw him at the Library of Congress, a few years ago, and left after one tune. I knew they had set up a over flow room w/ a video feed, and thought some one might want my seat. The one guy left in the room was getting up to leave when I got there.

    I have no idea what he was going for that evening, I had checked out some recordings, and red several "Tele and Champ" interviews. This was something entirely different, and tough to listen to in a small hall, he was using a largish amp, and just blasting, there was a definite "Emperors New Clothes" feel to the whole thing.

    Maybe some other time..
