Biography

Following his Grammy-nominated 2009 debut Sounding Point, virtuoso guitarist Julian Lage returns with the evocative and finely wrought Gladwell - the second effort by his offbeat, eclectic group with cellist Aristides Rivas, percussionist Tupac Mantilla, bassist Jorge Roeder and saxophonist Dan Blake.

The album unfolds according to a fanciful and story-driven plan, as Lage explains: ... Read more in Amazon's Julian Lage Store

Product Description

From the Artist

The album unfolds according to a fanciful and story-driven plan, as Lage explains: "We began playing with the idea of creating a story we could use as a guiding light in our writing process.... The result was the development of an imaginary and forgotten town known as Gladwell.... As a metaphor, Gladwell presented us with a clear architecture, to compose songs that evoke feelings of people and places we hold dear." "Dan has a background in classical composition as well as improvisation," says Lage, "so he brings a sense of curiosity to the band that is deeply rooted in a variety of traditions. From Aristides we've learned a tremendous amount about how to play as a chamber-like ensemble, how to utilize dynamics and blending, and how to move and breathe as a unit. The sound of cello has opened our ears to the world that lives between classical music and jazz and it is amazing to witness how Aristides so uniquely marries the two. Tupac is like a conductor of energy, using his diverse palette of colors to shape and inform the music - his approach is never static, and it is exhilarating to share in his passion for uncovering new approaches. Jorge [who was the first member to join the band] has an incredible grounding force that enables the band to really take off in any direction at any point in time - I feel Jorge's presence as kind of like the narrator of a story, always keeping an eye on the bigger perspective while remaining an active participant at every turn."

Gladwell is the perfect follow up to sounding point in my previous review on this album which im now editing for length all i can say is the tunes were great well done 233 butler,freight train, iowa taken, autumn leaves great rendition,cocoon was phenomenal as was margaret, they were all well done listening walk worth the stroll as i said before julian stands his ground against performers twice his age, around his age and others that have left us by, i dont patronize anyone im not so easy to impress seen alot of performers pump their chest this young man is the real deal like his choice of guitars too that he uses on the album as well as the musicians he surrounds himself with, top notch

Found this to be truly extraordinary music. Very heartfelt. Complex, yet easily accessible. This was the first recording I had heard of Lage as a leader and its simply breath-taking! I had first heard him as accompanyist on Voyager with Eric Harland and would highly recommend that CD as well. They both reveal the new direction in contmporary jazz of group improvisation at its highest level. Right up there with Wayne Shorter and his current group. Different sound entirely, however. Shorter is hard-edged. Lage is mellower.

I totally disagree with the assesement that these tunes are "chilly"-they are extremely engaging and melodic performed with great passion by all involved.Lage is the next master jazz guitarist IMO.

Simply seeing the performance on NPR's "Tiny Desk" podcast made me purchase this--I'm excited by the drummer's use of brushes as well as Julian's instrument choices. Reminds me of a freshened voice of jazz guitar with the likes of Pat Metheny.

Julian Lage's Gladwell is a beautifully balanced, composed, arranged and performed collection of jazz-slash-Americana tunes. Lage has chops to spare but never overplays; his own, and his band's, sense of dynamics is exceptional. The melodies, instrumentation and arrangements may remind one of Al Di Meola's World Sinfonia, Bill Frisell or Charlie Haden; but Lage's playing draws from many, many other directions as well yet remains solidly grounded in American blues and folk music. The cohabitation of advanced harmonic sensibilities with Lage's love for traditional acoustic American music makes for a very compelling mix of tones and melodic influences.

"Iowa Taken" alone is worth owning this album.

Great music, great tone from a highly creative musician. Absolutely wonderful interpretaions of "Freight Train" and "Autumn Leaves". The concept of Gladwell as a town works well!
