Even if you’ve never heard of American jazz guitarist B.D. Lenz it’s very possible you’ve heard his music before – it’s been featured on hundreds of TV shows around the globe in such shows as Breaking Bad, Wheeler Dealers, and Catfish. He’s released twelve CDs of his unique brand of funky jazz that fuses virtuoso musicianship with expert songwriting. Joining B.D. will be his New Jersey bandmates James Rosocha (bass) and Joe Falcey (drums). Together, this trio will keep you surprised with their eclectic mix of jazz standards, original jams, and pop classics. You’ll hear their unique renditions of anything from Duke Ellington to Pink Floyd to Stevie Wonder to Lenz’s own catchy originals.
Mix together the styles of Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, and Stevie Ray Vaughn and you have the recipe for contempo-jazz guitarist B.D. Lenz. The New Jersey native has played guitar since his early teens, is a graduate of Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, and has studied with such masters as Mike Stern, Vic Juris, and Charlie Banacos along the way.
“Part of the reason for his accessibility is that he not only fuses jazz and rock, he complements it with warm chords of funk, soul, and rhythm and blues.” – New York Times
