Join WCLK's Mark Angel for Spivey Hall's Concert featuring The Julian Lage Trio (VIDEO)
Join WCLK's Mark Angel Saturday night, April 23 at Spivey Hall for The Julian Lage Trio. Lage along with Jorge Roeber on bass and Kenny Wollsen on percussion will play original music as well as standards of the American jazz and folk traditions.
The Trio draws influence from modern jazz guitar trio of Jim Hall as well as operating as sonic laboratory for exploring the integration of acoustic and electric instruments in an improvising context.
“Running the gamut from covers of early-20th-century standards to originals inspired by 1970s-era rock” (Richard Bienstock, Rolling Stone), the Julian Lage Trio performs selections from its forthcoming 2016 recording, Arclight, which, says “the consummately versatile six-stringer” Lage,“‘focuses on my love for the electric guitar, especially the [Fender] Telecaster. And even more specifically, it’s centered around a jazz trio.’”
