WGBO The CheckoutSOLD OUT: Lage Lund Trio
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Lage Lund ’00 is acclaimed as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, as well as one of the most compelling jazz artists in the world today. He will perform with is trio as part of the fall edition of The Checkout - Live at Berklee.
Voted as the no. 2 rising star in guitar in the 2014 DownBeat Critics’ Poll, he has been hailed by Pat Metheny as a favorite young guitarist. Russell Malone, one of the judges who awarded Lund the top prize in the 2005 Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz International Guitar Competition, described him as “all music and all soul.”
Armed with a mastery of standard repertoire and a growing, 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,” according to the New York Times.
