Video: Five Contemporary Jazz Guitarists Worth Checking Out
Julian Lage, “223 Butler,” Gladwell
Julian Lage can best described as a “post-jazz” guitarist, well versed in genres ranging from be-bop to classical to bluegrass and blending them seamlessly into a style that's all his own. On this solo performance of his original composition, “223 Butler,” Lage shows off his limitless melodic creativity as well an expressive and dynamic touch on his vintage Gibson archtop.
Lage, now 23, got his start as a young jazz prodigy, cutting his teeth with legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton’s band at 15. Since then he has performed with a number of incredible musicians including Chris Thile, Eric Harland and Mark O’Conner.
