Album Notes
Hailed as one of the top 20 "Up and Coming" jazz musicians of New Jersey by the Newark Star-Ledger, and recently featured in the New York Times, guitarist B.D. Lenz leads an original band which has best been described as "a spirited mixture of sounds in the contemporary vein, ranging from the sprightly to the hard-wailing" (Curt Yeske - The Trenton Times). His music is groovin', melodic, and fully showcases his compositional skills as will as improvisational. The writing has often been compared to a cross of Pat Metheny and Mike Stern and yet still sounds his own.

Lenz has released two independent CD's of his original jazz/funk beginning with 'Tell The World' in 1997 and followed up with 'Lost & Found' in 2000. His third release entitled 'Simple Life' was released in April 2003 on Apria Records. This high-energy ensemble has performed rigorously throughout the US for TV, radio, festivals, clubs, cafe's, bookstores, etc. Noteworthy appearances include: Panasonic Village Jazz Festivals (NYC) EAT'M Showcase (Las Vegas), Black Dog Jazz Festival (VA), Central PA Festival of the Arts (PA), NJPAC Summer Concert Series (NJ), House of J&B (IN), and the Westfield Jazz Festivals (NJ) to name a few.

The band is made up of B.D. Lenz (gtr), Geoff Mattoon (sax/wind controller), James Rosocha (bass), Tom Cottone (drums), Joe Mekler (perc.), and Daniel Mintseris (piano/organ).

"[Lenz's] solos are fluid and interesting; his tone is clean and full bodied... and his band is on the money....Some of the highlights include Rosocha's bass solo on 'Lazy Bones,' Lenz's ferocious solo on 'Grandma Rosocha,' and the 5/4 riffs of 'Primitive.'"
- David R. Adler (All Music Guide)

One word, Awesomeness!!!
Awesome CD guys, perfect guitar and saxophones. Simply the best Jazz I've heard from a this generation of music. It's hard for a Jazz group to pull off even a decent sounding CD after all of the Pop, Rock and Rap music has been released, but this CD put them down and spits in their faces, good job guys.


T.sax - a Michael Brecker wannabe. Now's the time to find your own voice. You've got a great base to work from. Feature your guitar player more.....

Perfect and intense
This album is one of my favorites by B.D. Lenz. Whirlwind-like 'Leaving the Ground', interesting and exotic sax solo in 'Primitive", massive epic 'Lost and Found', every track deserves five stars.
