Peter Bernstein Trio Plays Monk
Peter Bernstein is an important role model for the current generation of jazz guitarists. With credits on over 60 recordings and having performed with Sonny Rollins, Lou Donaldson, Diana Krall, Joshua Redman, and Lee Konitz, Bernstein offers up virtuosity but what sticks out is his soulful affinity to the guitar and the material. With his Trio the New York based guitarist returns to the rich premise behind “Monk,” his well-‐received 2009 recording. Together with Doug Weiss and Bill Stewart they put their own spin on the rich legacy of Thelonious Monk, adapting its knotty idiosyncrasies to the fret board.
“The jazz guitarist, among the most sought after in the New York area, has a feather-light touch, an encyclopedic knowledge of chords and the ability to play standards like he’s inventing them on the spot.” The Los Angeles Daily News
“Mr. Bernstein is a fluidly improvising guitarist in the post-bop tradition, with control over harmony and a beautiful sound.” -The New York Times
“Peter Bernstein produces a warm, ringing, muscular tone which echoes that of such giants as Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, and Kenny Burrell.” -Jazziz
