Mix the sophistication of jazz, the grit of Blues, and the grooves of funk and soul, and you have the recipe for contemporary 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. Lenz has released 10 highly-acclaimed recordings as a leader featuring greats such as Randy Brecker, Will Lee, Joel Rosenblatt, & Mark Egan. He says of his music, “I work really hard on my writing. It’s important that the virtuosic musicianship of my band members have a context in which to show it off.” His latest studio recording, Manifesto, was a crowd funded effort that broke into both the Jazz and Jam radio charts. His music has also been featured in hundreds of TV shows globally including Breaking Bad (AMC), Catfish (MTV), Pawn Stars (History), Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (TLC), Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo), and Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations (Travel Channel) to name just a few. Lenz and crew have played thousands of gigs internationally. Select venues include Lincoln Center Jazz, Oxford Jazz Festival, Porthcawl Jazz Festival, Cape May Jazz Festival, Panasonic Village Jazz Festival, Musikfest, Oswego Harborfest, Deer Head Inn, PBS, and BBC Cambridge

"...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...powerfully impressive taken all in all." – Jazz Inside Magazine

"While doing a live album, with such a diverse repertoire, poses risk, Lenz rises to the occasion, releasing an entertaining and engaging album that is sure to be included on this year’s 'Best of' lists for jazz guitar." – Guitar International
