ABOUT THIS ALBUM


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, noted 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).
This CD "Tell the World," released in 1997, represents the debut of Lenz's unique hard-driven jazz. Often described as a cross between Mike Stern and Pat Metheny, Lenz manages to maintain his own identity both as a guitar player and as a composer. His highly structured songs are both melodic and groovin' yet leave plenty of space for his superb band to show their stuff.

"This is Lenz's superb, guitar-driven release that set the scene for his equally exceptional follow-up 'Lost and Found.' I really enjoyed Lenz's riffing and strong song-writing on every cut. His studies with the famous Mike "Sterno" Stern show through everywhere. Imitation? No. Lenz just has that same fired-up passion for jazz and fusion rockin' things out too. The slower, quieter movements, the lightning-swift runs, and the overdriven wailings of explosive legatos and string bends all flow together as one thought. Lenz has mastered his instrument and his confidence overflows everywhere. Fans of Stern's releases with great sax/axe unison lines and interplay will also surely get off on Lenz's jams. His fine jazz tastefulness and fusion rock drive is perfectly balanced. I'd give this CD a "two thumbs up" and a "golden pick" rating. High recommendations. Trust me, Lenz has got the right stuff." - John W. Patterson (All About Jazz)

Kevin

Brilliant
Got this because of the 'if you like Pat Metheny, you'll like this' recommendation on CD Baby. As I am a huge fan of PM I thought i'd give it go & Bi must say the album knocked my socks off. Excellent.

Jim Borzatti

Definitely high quality Jazz-Fusion
This cd really surprised me. I thought it was going to sound great after I sampled the short sound clips before buying it but when I played it I was surprised how great it really is. The other reviews here tell the truth also, so get yuorself a copy of this disc too and TELL THE WORLD what fine tracks a great group of artists have laid down here!

Mark, Ireland

Great writing and playing; very accomplished
These are some very fine musicians. Exellent playing all round and very competent writing in a tough genre. I've gone ahead and bought 2 of his other albums on the strength of this one!
