Jonathan Kreisberg – One
While recognized for his band leading skills on his international tours and countless CD’s (as well as for his sideman work with Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joe Locke, and Ari Hoenig, among others) One marks guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg’s first recording made up of entirely solo guitar performances. The program boasts a daring range of material and introduces the world to his unique polyphonic approach. Although at times it’s hard to believe, the entire recording is one man on one guitar with no overdubs, loops or extra tracks!
Modern jazz, a Brazilian mythical tale as heard on “Canto de Ossanha”, folk, and improvised music for an imaginary science fiction soundtrack (“Escape From Lower Formant Shift,”) are all refracted through Kreisberg’s prism to create a bold and complete tale. The repertoire includes original music alongside compositions from Wayne Shorter, Leonard Cohen, Rodgers & Hammerstein and others. Click HERE to purchase this CD.
