Welcome to the JAZZIZ Podcast. This is our new series of podcast conversations, hosted by JAZZIZ Online Editor Matt Micucci and featuring some of the best artists of today’s jazz and creative music scene. Many of these artists are part of JAZZIZ Vinyl Club, our series of limited-edition color vinyl albums curated by the JAZZIZ Editors, featuring some of the most exciting jazz artists from yesterday and today that we cover in the print version of JAZZIZ, our website and these podcasts.
This week’s JAZZIZ Podcast is a conversation with another top jazz guitar talent on the scene. B.D. Lenz is a New Jersey native and a graduate of the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. He has been an active musician since his early teens and has forged a unique sound by mixing several styles and genres, including the sophistication of jazz, the grit of blues and the grooves of funk and soul. That sound and those varied influences are heard all across the albums he has released as a bandleader. The latest of these is titled It’s Just a Dream, and includes such renowned special guests as Randy Brecker and Mike Stern.
Listen to our JAZZIZ Podcast conversation with B.D. Lenz via the player below. His latest album, It’s Just a Dream, is available now. Launch it here. And if you love jazz and vinyl, be sure to check out our carefully-curated series of vinyl compilations, JAZZIZ Vinyl Club!
