SUMMIT, NJ - Solo jazz guitarist, composer, and arranger Julian Lage, will perform in the next "Sounds of a Summer Night" concert at Reeves-Reed Arboretum (RRA) August 12.
 
Lage, a former child prodigy, was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary “Jules at Eight,” where audiences were introduced to the then eight year-old jazz and blues guitarist. 
 
The film follows Lage from the second-grade playground to his live performances. Throughout, the strikingly poised Lage challenges the viewer to reconcile his childhood innocence with his aptitude for the blues.

Among others, Lage has collaborated with Jim Hall, Mark O’Connor, Nels Cline, Chris Eldridge, Scott Colley, and Antonio Sanchez.  In addition to his own quintet, he has recorded with Gary Burton, David Grisman, Eric Harland, Anthony Wilson, Martin Taylor, Joshua Bell, and Yoko Ono.  
 
Lage's album, Sounding Point, was nominated for a Best Contemporary Jazz album Grammy in 2010.  His most recent album, Free Flying -- a collaboration with the extraordinary pianist Fred Hersch -- received a coveted five-star review in Down Beat Magazine.

All "Sounds of a Summer Night" concerts begin with the Arboretum grounds opening at 6 p.m. for concertgoers to picnic, with performances from 7 - 8 p.m.
 
The cost is free to RRA Members, courtesy of underwriting support from Investors Bank. There is a $10 per person donation for non-members, $5 for students. The concerts are also made possible, in part, by support from The Grand Summit Hotel, Tracy and Nick McKee, and the Summit Area Public Foundation.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
