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).

He has released two independent CD's of his original contemporary jazz beginning with Tell The World in 1997 and followed up with Lost & Found in 2000. His third release entitled Simple Life was released in the Spring of 2003 and represents Lenz's debut on New York jazz label Apria Records (look for a new recording in early 2005). This high-energy ensemble has performed rigorously throughout the Northeast for TV, radio, festivals, clubs, cafe's, bookstores, etc. Noteworthy appearances include: News12, Panasonic Village Jazz Festivals (NYC) EAT'M Showcase (Las Vegas), Black Dog Jazz Festival (VA), Central PA Festival of the Arts (PA), NJPAC Absolut Sounds of Summer (NJ), House of J&B (IN), Westfield Jazz Festivals (NJ), Black Potatoe Festival (NJ), Morristown Community Theater, Trumpets, Wetlands, 55 Bar, Conduit, Stanhope House, Crossroads, and Katmandu .
