PRE-ORDER VIEW WITH A ROOM

 

Lage will mark the arrival of View With A Room with a busy international live schedule, including an upcoming week-long stand at New York City’s famed Village Vanguard (July 26-31), to be followed by his “View With A Room In Concert” U.S. tour this Fall.

A stunning collection of 10 compelling original compositions, View With A Room sees Lage fulfilling a long-standing goal to “have lush orchestration combined with an organic sense of improvisation and the agility of a small ensemble” by expanding upon his core trio with the addition of six-string icon Bill Frisell. Having previously collaborated in several different contexts, including duo concerts and projects devised by John Zorn, the two musicians honed in on a shorthand musical vocabulary rich with references – spanning The Beach Boys, Keith Jarrett’s American and European Quartets, and George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass – to craft a subtle, eloquent weave that expertly manifests Lage’s enhanced vision in atmospheric and incisive ways throughout the new collection.

 

There’s no one I would trust more than Bill Frisell to come into our trio ecosystem and be able to expand it while totally embracing it,” Lage says. “It became a beautiful collaboration that achieved the Technicolor experience that I’ve been searching for.

 

Produced by Lage’s wife and musical partner, singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy, at Brooklyn’s Bridge Studios with engineer Mark Goodell, View With A Room marks Lage’s second release via Blue Note Records, following last year’s acclaimed label debut album, Squint. Lage’s longtime friend and collaborator Armand Hirsch added integral post-production elements that bring the emotional intent of each song into focus.
