"Despite his sometimes astonishing facility, or maybe because of it, Kreisberg tries to cultivate humility when he plays.  His melodies, sometimes acrobatic, sometimes lyrical, often convey surprising emotional depth. ALLEN MORRISON, JAZZ TIMES

Jonathan is a great musician whose playing and writing always tell a story. His formidable technique and intellect never get in the way, but only serve the agenda of the heart.
VIBRAPHONIST AND COMPOSER JOE LOCKE

Combining timeless melodicism with forwardthinking lines and textures, the music of Jonathan Kreisberg continues to attract a growing international fan base.   His compositions have been performed by his groundbreaking quartet on five continents.  As a guitarist, his sound and technique has influenced the next generation of players and has arguably contributed to the evolution of the instrument in jazz.  JKQ will perform brand new compositions that combine jazz tradition, instrumental virtuosity, modern soundscapes and influences from every corner of the world and beyond.

Jonathan has led various groups including such notables as Larry Grenadier, Bill Stewart, Gary Versace, Will Vinson, Kevin Hays, Mark Ferber, Matt Penman and Scott Wendholt among others.  He has released 5 critically acclaimed CD's on the Criss Cross and Mel Bay Labels as well as Trioing, Shadowless, One (his first all solo guitar recording), and Wave Upon Wave on his own NEW FOR NOW MUSIC label.
For the past 7 years Jonathan has also been a constant collaborator with NEA jazz master Dr. Lonnie Smith, who says of Kreisberg He is a passionate musician with great vision, and he is constantly in fiery pursuit of innovation." Jonathan was performer and producer on The Healer for Pilgrimage records, performer on Evolution for Blue Note Records, and performer and associate producer of All in My Mind for Blue Note as well. He has performed/performs as a sideman in the groups of Joe Locke, Stefano DiBattista, Lee Konitz, Ari Hoenig, the late Don Friedman, and many other jazz heavyweights.  He has also performed 20th century works with the New World Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas.
Jonathan is also a respected educator with over 25 years of experience. In 2017 he released his first book of compositions and transcriptions, OFFERINGS OF NOTE, as well as a series of instructional videos called POLYRTHYTHMIC GUITAR. Despite being grateful for offers to head up various university guitar programs, he has opted to continue his rigorous touring and recording schedule, while always making time for masterclasses and residencies as well as his own NEW FOR NOW music intensive held annually for the past 3 years in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY.
