Guitar virtuoso Julian Lage will be touring the United States in the fall. Beginning September 25 at Los Angeles, CA's Teragram Ballroom, this first leg of touring in support of his June 11-released Blue Note Records debut, Squint, ends on October 9 at Toronto, ONT's Axis Club. The dates pick up again on December 4 at (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York City and continue through December 12 at Nashville, TN's The Basement East. The September-October run will feature bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer Kenny Wollesen.
Guitar virtuoso Julian Lage shares "Boo's Blues," the second song from his soon-to-be-released Blue Note Records debut album, Squint, out June 11. The loping swing feel of "Boo’s Blues" exemplifies Lage’s ability to write with his bandmates in mind while echoing his influences.
“I like to imagine this music being played by the titans of bass and drums,” Lage says. “I'm imagining Billy Higgins, I'm imagining Art Taylor, I'm imagining Wilbur Ware, even though I’m writing explicitly for Dave and Jorge.”
Multiple GRAMMY® Award-nominated guitarist Julian Lage has set a busy winter schedule, beginning this week with a limited run of duo performances alongside fellow guitar icon Bill Frisell.

Piper Theater (December 8).
