Is acclaimed not only as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, but also as one of the most compelling jazz artists in the world today. He is “all music and all soul”, according to Russell Malone, one of the judges who awarded Lund top prize in the 2005 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. Armed with a mastery of the standard repertoire and a growing body of original compositions, Lund swings with great authority, displaying a staggering harmonic sophistication and a singularly fluid voice as a soloist. He also brings a “casually magnetic” presence to the stage, “channeling reticence into a whisper-quiet mystique” (New York Times).
Lage Lund released the new and fantastic album 'IDLEWILD' in 2015 with Ben Street & Bill Stewart, this time he forgoes the piano accompaniment for a trio approach that is refreshing and a step further forward. The mix includes a few originals and a well-chosen selection of standards, including the iconic Bobby Hutcherson piece 'Isn’t This My Sound Around Me'.
Here you will find the most reviews about Lage Lund this slider will be updated from time to time.
His playing and presence can both be casually magnetic. Like Jim Hall, one of the guitarists in his heroes' gallery, he channels reticence into a whisper-quiet mystique.
- The New York Times
Of the younger cats Lage is THE one. He's a wonderful player. Scary actually!
- KURT ROSENWINKEL
(Lund) opened huge aural expanses with voicings of just two or three notes, and burned down the house with one impossibly deft solo after another. I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone play the instrument that well.
- David Adler (Time out, Jazztimes)
The eminence of Lage Lund's guitar playing is clear.
