NPR's Piano Jazz Rising Stars

I have a new show on NPR called Rising Stars. Here is a look at my guests. Below is a look at my first guest.

Julian Lage

January 17, 2012

As a child, Julian Lage was quickly recognized as a guitar prodigy. He recorded with David Grisman and toured with Gary Burton before he was old enough to drive. Since then he has evolved into a composer with a deep understanding of the scope of American music, expressed on his acclaimed 2011 album, Gladwell. Lage solos on his “Etude  #1” and “Alone Together,” and joins Jon Weber for “Just Friends.” (Photo Credit: Michael Kurgansky)
