Julian Lage: Influences

Julian Lage: Influences

It's no surprise to discover that this jazz guitarist's influences are as versatile as his playing. The deep blues feel in Lage's records can be traced back to Stevie Ray Vaughan's fretwork, and his harmonic complexity has been seasoned by a love for composer Olivier Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, while his hard-swinging jazz style echoes John Coltrane's “Giant Steps.”
