Guitar summit featuring the world-class talents of Jonathan Kreisberg and Nelson Veras. Combining timeless melodicism and American swing with forward–thinking lines and textures, JONATHAN KREISBERG has performed 20th century works with the New World Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas; led his own groups and recorded several critically acclaimed CDs and played and recorded with Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joe Locke, Lee Konitz, Bill Stewart and Larry Grenadier among others.

He has performed/recorded with Steve Coleman, Michel Petrucciani, Tomasz Stanko, and Manu Kaché among others.
