Jazz: Jonathan Kreisberg Quartet
Event Type: music/performance
SUN, OCT 1 | 7:30pm | $20, $17 members (+$3 at the door)
Guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg has been steadily building his name as one of the most compelling composer/performers in Jazz. Combining timeless jazz melodies with forward thinking lines and textures, his style and approach has created a strong following of fans around the world. He frequently tours worldwide and records with his own groups, as well artists such as Dr. Lonnie Smith (Kriesberg was last seen at the Creative Alliance with Dr. Smith in the spring of 2017), who says Kriesberg is "a passionate musician with great vision [who] is constantly in fiery pursuit of innovation."
Jonathan has worked in the bands of many jazz greats, including Dr. Lonnie Smith, Lee Konitz, Joe Locke, Stefano Dibatista, Ari Hoenig, Joel Frahm, Don Friedman, Greg Tardy, Donald Edwards, Jane Monheit, and Yosvany Terry. He has also led groups featuring artists such as Bill Stewart, Larry Grenadier, and Scott Wendholt.
Jonathan has now recorded eight CDs as a leader, including ONE, his recent all solo guitar recording, and WAVE UPON WAVE, his latest JKQ offering. Based in New York City, Jonathan can be seen on tour worldwide. Entering the major Jazz Festival circuit with their electrifying show at Jazz Baltica (the combined video footage is now at 300,000 YouTube hits and counting), JKQ has subsequently performed many of the major European and American festivals.
His Quartet tonight will feature Nitai Hershkovits on piano, Matt Clohesy on bass, and Colin Stranahan on drums.
