Bio en Ingles: Guitarist/Composer Jonathan Kreisberg was born in New York City in 1972. "I was lucky to grow up in a household that had a great and wide record collection including Coltrane's ‘My Favorite Things’, John Williams playing the ‘Aranjuez Concierto’ and Cream's ‘Disraeli Gears’." While still a child his family moved to Miami, where at age 10 he began playing the guitar. Originally inspired by a range of music, his early studies focused on Rock and Classical guitar as well as music theory. At age 16 he was featured in Guitar Player Magazine for his original music, and was also accepted to the New World School of the Arts where his jazz studies took center stage. He began an intense practice schedule and and by the time he graduated high school he had been featured in Down Beat Magazine and had received a scholarship to the University of Miami Jazz program. At U of M he held the chair as guitarist for the acclaimed Concert Jazz band, touring Brazil and performing with Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker, and Red Rodney. Upon graduation, Jonathan began playing straight ahead jazz gigs as well as a myriad of other projects. He performed 20th century works with the New World Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas. He also recorded a C.D. and performed extensively with progressive rock group Third Wish. He formed the electric jazz oriented Jonathan Kreisberg Trio. Based in Miami, this Trio released a C.D. and completed several U.S. East Coast tours, which included opening slots for George Benson and Steve Morse. He also began giving clinics at music schools as well as teaching private lessons. In 1997 he returned to his birthplace in NYC with his focus on cutting edge acoustic jazz. "My Miami Trio was about coming up with new textures and being communicative while still playing intense musically. When I moved to New York I entered a more introspective phase, really getting deeper into melodies and harmonies." This also coincided with a renewed interest in the jazz tradition. "I found that the deeper I got into the tradition the more possibilities I became aware of for the future." He has since performed in the groups of Joel Frahm, Greg Tardy, Jeff Andrews, Josh Roseman, Roy Nathanson (Jazz Passengers), Donald Edwards, Jane Monheit, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ari Hoenig, Yosvany Terry and Lenny White, as well as leading his own groups of various instrumentations. In 1999, his trio (with drummer Ari Hoenig and bassist Johannes Weidenmueller) performed in Lima, Peru, where they also gave a clinic at the School of Peruvian Folklore. In early 2000 Jonathan composed and performed what the New York Times called the "elegant underscoring" for the off-broadway show Betwixt. In 2001 and 2003 he performed concerts and taught clinics at Tavira, Portugal's Algarve Em Jazz. In 2002 he completed a tour of Japan and recorded the CD “Ducktones” with drummer Donald Edwards’ Quintet. He has composed music and performed with eclectic songsmith/writer/performance artist David Cale. Jonathan also teaches lessons and workshops at the New School, City College, Philadelphia College of the Arts, Mannes School of Music and others. He has recorded three cd’s under his own name including JONATHAN KREISBERG TRIO(1996), TRIOING(2001) with Ari Hoenig and Johannes Weidenmueller, and NINE STORIES WIDE(2004). Released on the CrissCross Jazz label, this most recent recording features the sublime interplay of drummer Bill Stewart and bassist Larry Grenadier. “I feel that my different influences and experiences are now converging naturally in my music. I’m very excited about following through and getting my sounds out and into the world. I am preparing new music for my quintet and hope to release some documentation of that band in the near future. The band is the closest project to my heart to date. Balancing extra and introspection, electric and acoustic, space and density. ” When not touring as a performer and educator, Jonathan is based in NYC and can be found at his steady Wednesday trio gig at La Lanterna in Greenwich Village.
