"NY Times"

"The guitarist Lage Lund exudes a diffident and self-deprecating kind of cool. He's not a talker, or even much of a frontman. But as he demonstrated at the TriBeCa Performing Arts Center on Tuesday night, 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." - Nate Chinen/NYT

Bio

Guitarist Lage Lund was born in Norway.

After failing to make it in the highly competitive
snowplowing field in his hometown,
Lage set a more realistic goal
and pursued a career in jazz.

This led him to Berklee college of music in Boston
and the Juilliard school in New York,
where he was the first electric guitarist in the history of the school.

Since then Lage has had the opportunity to work with
Wynton Marsalis, Ron Carter, Mulgrew Miller,
Seamus Blake, Carmen Lundy, Aaron Parks, Marcus Strickland,
the Mingus Band and others.

Lage won the Thelonious Monk international jazz competition
in 2005 and was very happy about that, but wonders
if it ruined his chance of ever winning the lottery.

He is currently a member of the David Sanchez Quartet,
and Lage's latest record is of his working trio
(with bassist Orlando Le Fleming and drummer Rodney Green )
playing standards. It has the remarkably creative title
"Lage Lund Trio: Standards" and is available on iTunes and Amazon

His next release with a quintet playing original compositions
will be out on Criss Cross Jazz in september 2008
