Jonathan Kreisberg: Unearthed
JK: For sure, I want to continue expanding the concepts I've explored in my band, I could spend a lifetime doing that. But there are always such great lessons to be learned playing in situations with different parameters than the ones I've personally created as a composer or band leader.
I recently played a bit in Paris with the incredible Brazilian guitarist Nelson Veras, and we had so much fun that we are talking about more shows and some recording. In that duo situation, you have to call upon completely different instincts, compared to playing with a full ensemble.
Let's see, definitely looking forward to more gigs and learning experiences with Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ari Hoenig's Punk Bop and Joe Locke. I also love working with singers of all styles, and hope to eventually record material ranging from a solo setting to a big band. I better get to work.
