Album Review

After releasing two albums in late 2014 — the acoustic Avalon with Chris Eldridge and Room with Nels Cline — Julian Lage returns a year and a half later with what is officially branded a solo LP, Arclight. He's joined by bassist Scott Colley and drummer Kenny Wollesen, both of whom would subsequently tour with the guitarist as the Julian Lage Trio. For a recording first, Lage exclusively plays the electric guitar on the set, which includes seven originals and four covers. Highlights from the originals include the atmospheric "Stop Go Start," which is most concerned with timbre, and "Prospero," an elegant rocker. Among the cover highlights is an inspired take on the Sammy Fain classic "I'll Be Seeing You," though the album is short on weak moments much less tracks, despite a variety of tempos and tones. Arclight was produced by Grammy winner Jesse Harris (Norah Jones, John Zorn).

Arclight is an album of great depth and diversity. Wonderful to listen to this !

Superb

I'm not a huge jazz fan but Julian makes these stripped down songs so musical. I love his guitar tone here.
