Savannah Music Festival: Julian Lage & Jorge Roeder
Airs Thursday, November 19, at 8 p.m. Guitarist, composer and arranger Julian Lage is often categorized as a jazz musician, though his music is also rooted in traditional and acoustic forms. In addition to five prior SMF performances both solo and with a variety of collaborators including Mark O'Connor, Martin Taylor, Mike Marshall and Casey Driessen, Julian Lage has served on the faculty of SMF's Acoustic Music Seminar since its inception in 2012.
Lage is joined on this concert by Jorge Roeder, one of the most versatile bassists on the New York jazz scene. Roeder was awarded first prize at the 2007 International Society Of Bassists Jazz Competition, was a semi-finalist at the 2009 Thelonious Monk Jazz Bass Competition, and has played with such luminaries as Steve Lacy, Gary Burton and Kenny Werner. In this duo project, Julian Lage and Jorge Roeder display incredible musicianship, creative improvisation and boundless creativity.
