His three jazz violin CD releases, After You’ve Gone, The Gershwin Sessions, and Transparency have received critical acclaim. He has toured extensively in the United States, Canada, and Japan with The Lenny Solomon Trio and was a three-time winner of the annual Violinist Of The Year Award presented by The National Jazz Awards and has appeared as featured guest jazz soloist with many prestigious orchestras. As a member of the pop duo Myles And Lenny in the 1970s, he recorded two albums for Columbia Records, toured widely, and won a Juno Award. Lenny went on to found the pop string quintet, Quintessence, collaborating with Bill Bridges, and established himself as a versatile and much sought after studio musician. Lenny also put together a very unique ensemble, The Galaxy Trio combining classical and jazz styles on the violin. There is a $15-$20 cover.
