As part of the GRAMMY Museum's Celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, guitar virtuoso Julian Lage discusses his forthcoming Blue Note debut Squint, which will be released June 11. Squint is a striking new album that weds incisive, expressive songwriting with the profound interplay Lage has honed over the past few years with his deft trio featuring bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer Dave King.
