Lage Lund

" ...his playing and presence can both be casually magnetic. Like Jim Hall, one of the guitarists in his heroes' gallery, he channels reticence into a whisper-quiet mystique."

– The New York Times

Lage Lund is acclaimed not only as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, but also one of the most compelling jazz artists in the world today. He is “all music and all soul,” according to Russell Malone, one of the judges who awarded Lund top prize in the 2005 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.

Armed with a mastery of the standard repertoire and a growing body of original compositions, Lund swings with great authority, displaying a staggering harmonic sophistication and a singularly fluid voice as a soloist. He also brings a “casually magnetic” presence to the stage, “channeling reticence into a whisper-quiet mystique” (New York Times).

Lunds 2013 release Foolhardy on the Criss Cross label, his follow up to the critically acclaimed Unlikely Stories is a vibrant set of mainly original tunes with a superb supporting cast: pianist Aaron Parks joining the returning bassist Ben Street and drummer Bill Stewart.

In 2011 he brought out the independent live recording Small Club – Big City, produced by Jimmy Katz and recorded over several nights at the intimate Bar Next Door. This fine album captures the warm sound and intense interplay of Lund’s trio with bassist Orlando Le Fleming and drummer Marcus Gilmore (Jamire Williams on two tracks).

With the 2012 quartet release Live at Smalls — featuring Gilmore, Street and pianist Pete Rende — Lund continues to refine his artistry, bringing tonal clarity and an unerring sense of proportion to music recorded at Smalls, the famed Greenwich Village club. Through stateside appearances and live engagements throughout Europe, Japan and around the world, Lund has ascended to the highest ranks as a performer and a creative force. He is among those setting the agenda for jazz improvisation in the 21st century.




"Of the younger cats Lage is THE one. He's a wonderful player. Scary actually!"

– Kurt Rosenwinkel

"(Lund) opened huge aural expanses with voicings of just two or three notes, and burned down the house with one impossibly deft solo after another.. I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone play the instrument that well."

– David Adler
