On WAVE UPON WAVE Jonathan, along with alto saxophonist Will Vinson, the amazing Kevin Hays (on piano for half of the program) and the young rhythm section team of Rick Rosato and Colin Stranahan creates modern jazz that combines tradition, instrumental virtuosity, modern soundscapes and influences from every corner of the world (and beyond).   

In the liner notes Jonathan describes his process of composing/improvising and the inspiration of the title   "Relentlessly breaking on the shore, and each bringing forth the codes of the past…But also from the depths comes something new"
