Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome guitarist and composer Lage Lund and his trio featuring saxophonist Will Vinson and bassist Orlando le Fleming.
Lund has been called a “casually magnetic” presence on the stage, “channeling reticence into a whisper-quiet mystique” (New York Times). His latest album’s “provocative music is marked by a variety of musical and emotional contrasts: beautiful melodies versus sometimes noisy electronic effects, hard-grooving fusion versus rootsy Americana-ish passages, open spaces versus artfully crowded acoustic-electric soundscapes” (Philip Booth, JazzTimes).
Norwegian-born Lund hit the ground running following his win at the 2005 Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz International Guitar Competition. Praised publicly by such jazz-guitar icons as Pat Metheny and Kurt Rosenwinkel, Lund became a fixture of the Rising Star guitar category of the DownBeat Critics Poll, and he has appeared as a member of David Sánchez Quartet, Mark Turner Quartet, Seamus Blake Quintet, and on Maria Schneider Orchestra’s 2017 Grammy winning “Thompson Field” – the title track being a feature for Lund.
