Jonathan Kreisberg, jazz guitarist and composer from Brooklyn, New York.
- Jonathan-Kreisberg interview in Jazz Guitar Life who discusses his musical background, his latest recordings and his philosophy on teaching. Here's a litte taste “When I was young (like before high school), I loved listening to Jazz. My father had some Coltrane and Miles records. But playing wise, I hadn't connected the guitar with that lineage yet. I was playing rock and classical predominantly. Then in high school, I began checking out guys like Pat Martino, Pat Metheny, Allan Holdsworth, Jim Hall and John Scofield. Then It all started to make sense to me. I started to find that I was most comfortable in an improvisation based context, and that I needed to learn to master the fundamentals and history of the guitar in that realm.”
