One of the most unique talents in contemporary jazz, guitarist Julian Lage juxtaposes tradition and progress on his latest trio effort, Modern Lore. The record is not a strictly guitar-centered record, however. Lage and his band focus more on interplay and building songs together instead of minutes-long solos. Come get fired up for Big Ears 2018 with a mesmerizing seated Sunday show at The Mill & Mine in the heart of Downtown Knoxville, accompanied with a delicious meal prepared by Chef Jesse Newmister from Kaizen!
