Good stuff isn’t it. I only found him earlier this year. You might like this one too:
And if, like me, you’ve only just found Julian Lage, maybe Bill Frisell could be new to you as well??
Ooh thanks man. Too bad I'm so far up the coast from LA because I see this is happening:
Frisell and Lage double bill!!!! Arghhhh! Too bad I'm so far east!
Julian Lage is just a freaking monster player. Kind of blows my mind that he's almost exactly my daughter's aga (he's one week younger). Then again, blows my mind that she's a doctor too. But she can't play like this guy!
Modern Lore is a wonderful album of his.
I think he plays a Nachocaster on it.
Seeing him live in Portland next Friday! So stoked.
Dang I'm jealous. Don't happen to have an extra ticket do you? I checked his schedule but Portland and Seattle are both sold out and I don't feel like driving to Chico...
Nope, I have two tickets and I’m definitely taking my wife. But if she gets sick or something I’ll let you know
This will be my third time seeing him live. First time was an acoustic show with Chris Eldridge, second time was the Modern Lore tour. I’d like to see a hybrid show someday with a mix of trio and acoustic stuff.
Julian Lage is simply fantastic. He played at the age of 8 with Santana.
My favorite, especially when he‘s playing Telecasters (Nachocaster, 1954 Blackguard).
Have you heard Frisell and Lage in Healdsburg Ca a couple years ago.
Very interesting, Friz has his way of playing where he layers chords one note at a time and lets it all hang in space, a sonic tapastry.
Julian followed Friz at the important moments but then he went frantic genius and quickly Friz had too respond. That's one thing about Julian, he's not shy to step in and tear it up.
Bill responded by also playing more notes faster. Some of the most notey Friz I've heard. Not Julian fast but fast. And not just fast but beautiful like Wes was playing.
They played all standards that they had not rehearsed.
Think I'll listen to it now.
Ive also discovered him late last year, Ive been hooked on him ever since.. He's really good, and even if I havent met him or watched him live yet, I think he's a good, approachable guy! i wish I have his chops though...
but he's one of the reasons I immediately looked for a jazz guitar teacher and took formal jazz lessons! only lasted a few sessions though, a new baby came into our lives, so I have no more time! LOL
I just saw him last night. He just keeps getting better and better live. He brought his Nacho tele back but with a P90 in the neck and no more Champ.
What are your thoughts on Lage Lund, Gilad Hekselman, and Mike Moreno?
My guitar teacher listens to Gilad Hekselman, but Im not familiar with Mike Moreno and Lage Lund.. thanks for recommending them to me! I need more of this kind of guys to listen and learn (copy LOL) from! Im honestly tired of doing blues all the time, I want to expand and learn something new and inject something different to my genre..
Another must watch early Julian showing his fire on a borderline gypsy sound. Django would enjoy Julian.
Well those are some of the young lyons on the scene today, a generation behind Rosenwinkle, who is a generation behind Sco. If you haven't heard Scofield he is most definately a must get to know. He rewrote tge book on funk blues jazz guitar. And then there's Pat Metheny, Robben Ford,,, his jazz side.
My wife is a walking music library.. While growing up, all I knew were Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, maybe a bit of Alternative rock bands like Soundgarden, Red hot, The Verve, etc.. When we started dating, she introduced me to Toto, Rippingtons, Tears for Fears, Path Metheny, and etc etc.,. I was surprised on how much I missed.. I just discovered Robben Ford (flew under my radar) early last year..
These are the people/bands I need to know! my guitar teacher is educated in Berkley, and is a jazz musician, but given the time constraints and just wanting to have something different and improve my repertoire and also improve my guitar playing skills, he recommended me to learn Jazz Blues for now..
Yes I havent heard of Scofield.. Thank you.. Can you post a good link for me to listen to?
So far our lessons have ended on whole note scales and some jazz introduction on a 12 bar blues.. but he wanted me to listen first to classics like Miles Davis.. etc..
