Julian Lage group: Gladwell - review

The discovery of more recent guitar of vibraphonist Gary Burton, Julian Lage, did follow-up attractive to the Grammy nominated debut, Point survey. Burton discovered Pat Metheny still younger he did the twentysomething Lage and his opinion of the guitarists is always helpful to make a check out. Lage is not a road right jazz that comparably open but all also guitarist American such as Bill Frisell and band newcomer - cello, percussion, bass, and the saxophonist quietly but incisive Dan Blake - reflects that. Gladwell is an invigorating demonstration how vives a sound world may be established by a quintet of acoustic players. It moves from groovers fast-strummed in which the cello and sax shake, then turns into a busy night city full of whispering voices, through cafe-music romantic pirouettings (to become demandingly percussion) and finally of delicatejig-like melodies. Treatment Lage ingenious and clear of the Freight Train standard acoustic guitar solo and its harmonics ping account concerned of Autumn Leaves, will get much attention from the students of the guitar. But this is an album of quiet character for each type of listener.
