Jonathan Lorentz plays with a sound that is warm in tone and rich in melodic complexity. He is a daring and creative improviser who blends modern jazz with blues, rock, and the avant-garde. Jon's album Borderlands (his first for the UK Métier Jazz label) was released to critical acclaim in 2010, and is receiving airplay on radio stations throughout the world. In March of 2011 Fanfare Magazine's Lynn René Bayley remarked that "Jonathan Lorentz has really got it: a great style, an explorative mind, and a concept for this album that goes beyond the usual fare you hear from jazz sax trios."
Jon has performed or recorded with Dave Calarco, John Menegon, Tanni Tabbal, Francesca Tanksley, Judi Silvano, Bob Gullotti, Hezekiah Walker, Ira Coleman, Ratzo Harris, Gabe Jarrett, Mike Dillon, Delfeayo Marsalis, Harry Allen, Bruce Gertz, John Lockwood and Yoron Israel.
Jon holds a PhD in Performance from New York University and works as an arranger, transcriber and engraver for Jazzlines Publications. He has recently relocated to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire from New York, and plays regularly at the Jazz Bar in Weirs Beach.
