The greatest collaborations often are built upon two unique personalities that combine to create something beyond and outside of what the two had achieved individually. When those two musical individuals are like minded, yet possess their own specific sounds and approaches, the results can challenge the two to reach new heights and bring exhilarated audiences along for the ride.

Such is the musical and personal friendship of guitarists Jonathan Kreisberg and Nelson Veras, and their upcoming recording and tours will introduce audiences to a new sound in the world of guitar.

JONATHAN KREISBERG is known for combining timeless melodicism and american swing with forward–thinking lines and textures, and his music of continues to attract a growing international fan base. The guitarist has performed 20th cen­tury works with the New World Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas; as well as led his own groups and recorded several critically acclaimed cd's. He has played and recorded with Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joe Locke, Lee Konitz, Bill Stewart and Larry Grenadier among other Jazz legends.

NELSON VERAS has long been one of the guitar world's great secrets, possessing a unique style based on a mixture of classical guitar techniques, ultra modern jazz lines, classical harmony, and his Brazilian roots. He was "discovered" by Pat Metheny at age 14 and went on to win numerous awards before he was even 19. He has performed/recorded with Steve Coleman, Michel Petrucciani, Tomasz Stanko, and Manu Katché among others.
