Guitarist and composer Jonathan Kreisberg has built a strong worldwide following and has influenced the next generation of musicians with his unique combination of timeless melodicism and forward thinking lines and textures.  He is recognized as a player who has studied the Jazz language deeply while infusing it with fresh new ideas, expanding the possibilities of the guitar.

Jonathan has led various groups with star players and performed as a sideman with such notables as Lonnie Smith, Joe Locke, Ari Hoenig, Yosvany Terry,  Larry Grenadier, Bill Stewart, Gary Versace, Will Vinson, Kevin Hays, Mark Ferber, Matt Penman, and Martin Bejerano among others.   He has released 11 critically acclaimed CD's including "The South of Everywhere", "Shadowless", "One" (his first all solo guitar recording), "Wave Upon Wave", "Kreisberg Meets Veras", and "Capturing Spirits - JKQ Live!".  He has received the ASCAP Plus Award annually for 15 years.

For 12 years Jonathan had 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 worked as performer and associate producer for Dr. Smith's recent works on Blue Note Records.  He has performed 20th century works with the New World Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas.

In addition to his work as a Jazz composer his music was also featured in many scores for Playwrights Horizon in NYC, the Goodman theater in Chicago, and Hartford Stage.

Jonathan is also a respected educator with over 20 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.   He also founded “EXPLORATIONS OF NOTE”,  a unique online music education program for advanced players.
