Julian Lage Trio
For New Year's Toast of the Nation NPR concert broadcast, Julian Lage will be joined by two of his newest collaborators, the jazz virtuosos Larry Grenadier on bass and Eric Harland on drums.
Hailed by All About Jazz as "a giant in the making," 2008 Berklee graduate Julian Lage grew up in California and was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary, Jules at Eight. He gained pivotal early exposure as a protégé of legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton, recording and touring with Burton on three projects: Generations (2004), Next Generation (2005), and Common Ground (2010). Following his Grammy-nominated 2009 debut, Sounding Point, Lage's latest release is the evocative and finely wrought Gladwell.
The concert will be heard domestically on more than 200 NPR affiliate stations, on Sirius XM Radio, and around the world on NPRmusic.org and on NPR Worldwide.
