About

“sophisticated harmonic thinking and a modern approach…As a guitarist, Sellenraad has an
abundance of technique . . . there is an absence of grandstanding, and one always hears music
first.”
 —Jazz Improv Magazine

Acclaimed jazz guitarist Will Sellenraad brings his formidable trio to Zinc jazz club. He’s supported by bassist Rene Hart and drummer Eric McPherson.

Will Sellenraad has earned a fast-growing reputation of being at the forefront of creative musicians working in New York City.  Known for his brilliant improvisations and his compelling, melodic compositions, this New York City native melds the various styles, phrasings, and concepts of the jazz idiom with the raw elements of soul, rock and funk, to create a singular sound that is nothing short of inspiring.

The son of prominent New York painters, he was destined towards music at an early age. Raised and immersed in the City’s downtown art and music culture, Sellenraad was able to focus all his energies and talent toward the guitar. After being awarded numerous scholarships, Sellenraad graduated from the New School University Jazz Program in 1995, where he studied under many jazz giants.

A recipient of several grants from the New York State Council on the Arts, Sellenraad is a mainstay on the music scene in and around New York City, appearing at storied jazz venues such as The 55 Bar, Smalls, Mezzrow, The Blue Note, Birdland, The Iridium, the former Sweet Basil and many others.
