He is not an award-free musician, his work has been celebrated for years, Puerto Rico is on his heart, the music is powerful, playing with jazz legends seems to be a hobby for him!

Of course I’ve got a sometimes long list of albums waiting to be posted on my blog – how could I post daily if not so? Some albums don’t respect the waiting line – this one by Lage Lund which I have been waiting for since its release – I was really curious about it – as soon as I listened to its first sounds – becoming an immediate post was inevitable – there’s something about these cool guitar albums that attracts me mercilessly! What can I do about it?! Not much, I suppose …
Track Listing: Rumspringa; Intro to Rain; Come Rain or Come Shine; So In Love; Isn’t This My Sound Around Me?; Mirrors; Just One of Those Things; Intro to Chance; Chance; Good Morning Heartache; Straight Street; Idlewild
Personnel: Lage Lund: Guitar; Ben Street: Bass; Bill Stewart: Drums
Lage Lund possesses great improvisational and compositional technique – the album demands full attention and some experience in complex concepts from the listener. Foolhardy is a refined album even if the three last tracks are standards with swing enough to ease the listener’s task.
