    I could swear I've heard The Windup before, then I realised where I'd heard it - a Steve Gadd band record.

    He's still great playing power chords.

    I just clicked on the first one and it played, and then proceeded to auto play down the list.

    Hmmmm I tried twice. Waited a fair time and still got silence. Oh well. I’ll be getting the CD, so I’ll hear it then.

    +1 to Live in Los Angeles. Gig I saw last year was the best jazz show I've seen in some time.

    I saw a reference to him not playing a Tele now, but not the origin of that rumor/fact. What's he playing and where did you hear that he's not playing a Tele?

    I was hoping to make the show Saturday....weather isn’t looking good. It’s a heck of a long drive for me.

    Thanks for that! Sounds great! Hearing those samples, I'm kicking myself for selling my Duo Jet, sounds so good! I've got 3 guitars I've sold over the years that I regret selling, and that DuoJet is one of them.

    Gretsch Duo Jet. "1953 body and pickups with a 1958 neck. DeArmond Pickups." - via PG Jams with Julian Lage on 10.3.18.

    The Gretsch is on loan from Jeff Tweedy.

    Actually this Gretsch is the one he purchased from a friend. I believe in that PG Jams episode he talks about that.

    I think jazz, like blues, is definitively a live medium that often doesn't translate well to the recorded world. It's often just a snapshot of where that particular artist or combo happened to be on one day. I don't mean to imply that the albums are throwaways, but it seems like there's quite a bit less planning and writing that goes into recording them compared to rock, pop or folk music. That's a very traditional approach that goes back to the earliest days of recorded music.

    Interestingly, the economics of the industry are pushing artists in other genres to be a bit less precious/less structured with how they approach recording sessions. That's probably for the better in a lot of cases. Less money spent = less to recoup. They can focus their efforts where it counts, such as in getting great takes with the energy/emotion they are after instead of pristine multi-layered dreck.

    Julian's T.K. Smith Bigsby-themed guitar is awesome!

    Edited because I originally attributed the guitar to TV Jones! Thanks for the correction, WordMan!

    I actually don't like the look of that one.

    It's definitely not 'mainstream' looking! I personally like the look of symmetrical double-cuts like SGs, Barney Kessel's, etc., The P-90s, wooden archtop bridge, maple (birdseye?) top, and the big, custom pickguard are cool. I would NOT like a lot of elements of that guitar taken individually (like the trem and knobs), but as a whole, it's pretty neat.

    I wonder if it's fully hollow, semi, solid?

    I can't tell if it's the camera angle, or if that guitar is giant (or Lage is tiny). Is it 16"? 17"?

    More info, anyone?

    Correction: The guitar is made by hardcore Bigsby fanboy and brilliant craftsman T.K. Smith - https://tksmith.net/

    Never... ever... sell...a Duo Jet.

    Seriously, I'm playing a Duo Jet myself and it's by far my favourite guitar, though it's quite modded by now with TV Jones Classics and a Compton bridge.
    I'm extremely curious how the new album will compare tonewise to Julian's Tele-driven records.
