  Guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg has been steadily building his name as one of the brightest young stars in Jazz.  His style and approach has created a strong following of fans around the world as he toured and recorded extensively with his own groups as well artists such as Dr. Lonnie Smith, who says of kreisberg "He is a passionate musician with great vision, and he is constantly in fiery pursuit of innovation." 
  On WAVE UPON WAVE Jonathan, along with alto saxophone genius Will Vinson, the amazing Kevin Hays (on piano for half of the program) and the young rhythm section team of Rick Rosato and Colin Stranahan creates modern jazz that combines tradition, instrumental virtuosity, modern soundscapes and influences from every corner of the world (and beyond).   
  In the liner notes Jonathan describes his process of composing/improvising and the inspiration of the title   "Relentlessly breaking on the shore, and each bringing forth the codes of the past…But also from the depths comes something new"
