Hailed by All About Jazz as “a giant in the making,” guitar prodigy Julian Lage grew
up in California and was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary,
Jules at Eight. He gained pivotal early exposure as a protégé of legendary
vibraphonist Gary Burton, recording and touring with Burton on two projects. With
his first recording, Sounding Point, Lage arrived at a unique approach to composition
and ensemble craft, developing a searching yet accessible sound that earned him his
2009 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. With Gladwell, his
second effort by his offbeat, eclectic group, Lage returns with evocative and finely
wrought music that continues to open new doors and explore new horizons.
