2013 live album from living Jazz legend pianist Fred Hersch and guitar virtuoso Julian Lage. The February 2013 recording from New York's Kitano is a lively affair filled with poignant beauty, instantly gripping and a great display of how well these two mesh together as they adeptly play six original Hersch compositions and three Jazz standards.

Nels Cline is a major force as a guitarist and improviser, ever since he debuted on record in 1978 and as a leader in 1988. Named by Rolling Stone as one of 20 “new guitar gods” and one of the top 100 guitarists of all time, Cline has gained his widest fame as a member of acclaimed rock band Wilco since 2004. With ROOM, Cline returns to Mack Avenue, creating a world of melodic beauty but also hard sonic edges and technical brilliance in the company of Julian Lage. At just 26, Lage has taken the world of jazz guitar by storm. The New York Times hails the “disarming spirit of generosity” in Lage’s music and notes the young guitarist’s "roots tangled up in jazz, folk, classical and country music".

Genre: Jazz | Label: Good Time Records

2015 release, the first solo guitar album from Julian Lage. WORLD'S FAIR is so spontaneous and intimate in feel it's as if this prodigious guitarist had just arrived in your living room, picked up his vintage Martin, and simply started to play. It's very much a project created in the moment, a dozen acoustic guitar tracks recorded over the course of a mere two days, at Sear Sound in New York City. In concept, however, WORLD'S FAIR was more than a year in the making, as Lage gradually came to embrace the rich musical and emotive possibilities within the austere format of one musician and one acoustic guitar.

Veteran guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco, The Nels Cline Singers) and youthful virtuoso Julian Lage (Gary Burton, Mark O'Connor, Jim Hall) release 'Room', their first album as a duo. The setup on 'Room' is simple. Lage is on the left channel, Cline on the right. The sound is pristine, alive with personality and contrast, improvisational daring and jaw-dropping precision.

On paper, an instrumental acoustic guitar duo sounds like an odd idea, one that could quickly veer toward the redundant. But in the hands of Julian Lage and Chris "Critter" Eldridge (Punch Brothers), two of today's most accomplished six-string slingers, this dual guitar approach is the perfect means to draw new inspiration from an instrument so firmly rooted in tradition.

This album is the latest of several recordings in which pianist Fred Hersch solos or joins forces with some highly intelligent, advanced musicians to provide jazz renditions with a sophisticated, chamber music quality. Others are Hersch's Alone at the Vanguard (Palmetto, 2011); Leaves of Grass (Palmetto, 2005)—an ensemble composition based on Walt Whitman's poems—and two additional solo albums: Fred Hersch plays Jobim (Sunnyside, 2009) and In Amsterdam: Live at the Bimhuis (Palmetto, 2006). He also collaborated with trumpeter Ralph Alessi on Only Many (Cam Jazz, 2013).

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.

In their 'Schubertiade', Julian Pregardien and his instrumental friends recreate the special artistic mood one could have felt in Schubert’s day in a Viennese salon. To evoke that atmosphere, they have created a new collage of musical and literary fragments associated with the composer, featuring the unusual combination of flute, baryton and guitar.
