“a deftly imaginative guitarist”
—The New York Times
Acclaimed Norwegian jazz guitarist Lage Lund brings his formidable trio to Zinc jazz club on Monday, June 25. He’s supported by bassist Ben Street and drummer Jonathan Blake.
Norwegian-born Lage Lund is acclaimed not only as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, but also one of the most compelling jazz artists in the world today. He is “all music and all soul,” according to Russell Malone, one of the judges who awarded Lund top prize in the 2005 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.
Armed with a mastery of the standard repertoire and a growing 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” (New York Times).
Showtimes are at 8 pm & 10 pm. Tickets: $20 in advance / $25 day of show. For more info call (212) 477-9462.
