Growing up in Norway, a young Lage Lund dreamt of moving to New York, though not to play guitar, but to break dance in the NY subway system. Luckily for jazz guitar fans, this dream was never realized. Instead, Lund picked up the guitar at the age of thirteen and hasn't looked back. Since then, he has recorded on numerous records as a sideman, released three albums under his own name, and won the most prestigious jazz competition in the world, 2005's Thelonious Monk Guitar Competition
AAJ Contributor Matthew Warnock spoke with Lund recently, about the recording of his latest album, Unlikely Stories (Criss Cross, 2010), evolving his own sound...and a little gear talk for guitarists.
Check out Lage Lund: Looking Forward at AAJ today!
