Spoleto (7 of 8)

I heard the most fantastic acoustic jazz guitarist tonight.  Julian Lage is only 21 years old and it the “official guitarist” of Spoleto and Grammy nominated and I can see why.    He was on stage with one of his band member, an acoustic bass player who in my opinion was equally as good.  I was fascinated by how the bassist would play cords, pluck the string, slap them and produce wonderful sounds I couldn’t imagine coming from this instrument.   The performers really had a great time on stage, lots of energy and amazing playing….  Most excellent!
