About B.D. Lenz:
Mix the styles of Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, and Stevie Ray Vaughn and you have the recipe for contempo-jazz guitarist B.D. Lenz. This New Jersey native has released nine CDs as a leader featuring such greats as Randy Brecker, Will Lee, Mark Egan, & Joel Rosenblatt among others. His music has been featured on hundreds of TV shows globally for MTV, VH1, A&E, Comedy Central, USA, Spike, HGTV, etc., and his band has played thousands of gigs internationally.

"...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

"Bottom Line: Lenz is a real embodiment of a guitar hero...But just like jaguars are born to run, Lenz is born to play...leaving the listener breathless in their musical journey with him. He is a big sound, a big talent..." – Jazz Inside Magazine

Brilliant
Got this because of the 'if you like Pat Metheny, you'll like this' recommendation on CD Baby. As I am a huge fan of PM I thought i'd give it go & Bi must say the album knocked my socks off. Excellent.

Definitely high quality Jazz-Fusion
This cd really surprised me. I thought it was going to sound great after I sampled the short sound clips before buying it but when I played it I was surprised how great it really is. The other reviews here tell the truth also, so get yuorself a copy of this disc too and TELL THE WORLD what fine tracks a great group of artists have laid down here!

Great writing and playing; very accomplished
These are some very fine musicians. Exellent playing all round and very competent writing in a tough genre. I've gone ahead and bought 2 of his other albums on the strength of this one!
