    Nice! I’m still about a year out on my he KOT list. Thought about adding a SunLion when it’s my time, miss that pedal.

    I had two originals. But when they were discontinued and prices shot up I couldn't justify hanging on to them at the time for what I was offered on them.

    Love Hurts? Did Margaret Glaspy dump him and keep the Danocaster? :cool::D <just kidding>

    I love all of Julian's albums, but Arclight and Modern Lore are my favorites. I wasn't too keen on Sounding Point, Gladwell and World's Fair the first few times I heard them, but after really enjoying Arclight, Modern Lore and Currents, Constellations (with the Nels Cline 4) and Room (duets with Cline), I went back and listened with fresh ears.

    To me, Lage is the most interesting jazz guitarist (and guitar instrumentalist) around today. His sense of melody and the freedom in his playing are absolutley compelling.

    I wouldn't argue if others disagree - we all have our own taste. I can see how people really like, say, Rosenwinkel. I like Star of Jupiter but find some of his other stuff a bit dull. - Same with Frisell. He has some fantastic stuff, but a lot of albums that don't do much for me.

    As for Nels Cline, the stuff he's done with Julian is my favorite, but I love his playing on Mike Watt's Contemplating the Engine Room. If you enjoy 'mood music' his Lovers album is fantastic. I love the tunes, playing and arrangements. It could probably be a little shorter, but it's excellent chillout music.

    I have to say, that immediately jumped to mind for me as well. ;)

    I think Julian Lage is the best player working today not named Jeff Beck ;) His versatility and musicality never ceases to amaze. I have a couple of his albums, but seek him out online to see his guitar etudes, his jazz trio work, his Americana work with Chris Eldridge, and so much other great stuff. Being able to watch him play is part of the appeal - his fluidity and ease of approach.

    He played "in Heaven" and "Love Hurts" when I saw him a few months ago, and they were jaw droppingly good. In fact, those were the show highlights for me. So psyched for this!

    That Watt album is an underrated gem. It is superb.

    I'd love to see a duo record from those two.

    He played "Tomorrow Is The Question" on a Premier Guitar livestream a few months ago:



    Here is the original:

    Amen, brother. Engine Room was my introduction to Nels. Cool to read his tour spiels in the Hoot Page during that tour. I've seen Watt in quite a few incarnations over the years, one of my favorite musicians and just a really good man.

    I saw Julian last year and it was glorious, what a killer he is. Hope to see him again often, but that was his first time in Chicago either in a long time or ever, I forget what he said about it, but he doesn't come here often.

    He did In Heaven and Crying when I saw him, as well as some song where the head sounded a lot like Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden. When you put those together, it kinda felt like a tribute to Chris Cornell, though I have no idea if that was his intention.
