Jonathan Kreisberg has studied a wide range of music and performed in many eclectic situations, with a busy touring schedule and positive reviews from the press, he’s steadily becoming one of the most exciting new faces on the international Jazz scene. Jonathan played with Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker and Red Rodney. He performed 20th century works with the New World Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas. He has performed as a sideman in the groups of Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joe Locke, Lee Konitz, Ari Hoenig, Don Friedman, Stefano DiBattista, Joel Frahm, Greg Tardy, Donald Edwards, Jane Monheit, and Yosvany Terry, as well as leading his own groups. On this new recording it features Jonathan’s touring band members: Will Vinson on Saxophone, Henry Hey on piano, Matt Penman on bass, and Mark Ferber on drums.
The release of “Shadowless” marks the rebirth of New For Now MusicUSIC, a label Kreisberg created in 2002 for the release of “Trioing”.Jonathan started playing guitar at the age of ten after moving to Miami with his family. At 16 he was admitted to the New World School of the Arts, where his jazz studies took center stage. Intensely dedicated to the instrument, he was featured in Guitar Player and DownBeat while still in his teens.
We’ve got 8 very classy tracks, they respect the tradition, but the compositions stretch the possibilities of forms and the sounds challenging the barriers of an acoustic jazz group. Complex rhythmical schemes and deep lyrical  content make this journey complete and exciting. “Shadowless” is a trip worth to take.
