WBGO The Checkout Presents: Lage Lund Trio
October 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
The Checkout from WBGO – Live at Berklee, a collaboration betweenWBGO Jazz 88.3 and Berklee, presents the Lage Lund Trio. Lage is hailed by Pat Metheny as one of his favorite young guitarists, and is a Downbeat and Thelonious Monk Competition winner. He will be performing with Ben Street on bass and Jonathan Blake on drums.
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. Voted as # 2 “Rising star – Guitar” in the 2014 Downbeat Critic’s Poll, he has been hailed by Pat Metheny as a favorite young guitarist, and 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 and impressive 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).
Admission: $10 general public / $5 students
