Taylor Eigsti & Julian Lage at Stanford Jazz Festival at Dinkelspiel Auditortium (Stanford University)
At just 29, Taylor Eigsti has accomplished a lot. He’s released seven critically acclaimed albums as a leader, receiving two Grammy nominations for Lucky To Be Me in 2006. He’s performed or recorded with such luminaries as Joshua Redman, Nicholas Payton, Dave Douglas, Christian McBride and Gretchen Parlato. And he’s led clinics at some of the nation’s leading schools of jazz, including NYU and the University of North Texas. A frequent collaborator with Eigsti is 26-year-old guitar virtuoso Julian Lage, who came to prominence with vibraphone giant Gary Burton over the past decade. His own 2009 release, Sounding Point, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. Lage and Eigsti are kindred spirits with much in common — both are from the Bay Area, currently based in New York; both were child prodigies and worked with jazz greats while still young; and they clearly enjoy each other’s musical company.
