2009 CD release.
Emerging on the music scene 13 years ago, Julian Lage was quickly deemed a guitar playing prodigy. Playing a unique style that melded blues, classical, folk and jazz influences, Lage received praise from musical luminaries, including Herbie Hancock and Bela Fleck. He chose to become a sideman with established instrumentalists like Gary Burton. Now at the age of 21, Lage releases his debut album, SOUNDING POINT, on EmArcy Records, an imprint of Universal Records.
The music ranges from through-composed works and impromptu improvisations in duo and trio settings to solo excursions and a finale capped by a masterful interpretation of Miles Davis's "All Blues." Lage also delivers impressive covers of Elliott Smiths "Alameda" and Neil Heftis "Lil Darlin'." the CD features special guests Eigsti, Bela Fleck and renowned mandolinist Chris Thile of Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers fame.
