Peter Bernstein Quartet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly.

The gifted guitarist Peter Bernstein has been a vital part of the international jazz scene since 1989. As an accompanist, he’s gigged and/or recorded with groups led by Sonny Rollins, Bobby Hutcherson, Lou Donaldson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Diana Krall, Lee Konitz and many more. Peter has released nine albums as a leader as well as the DVD Peter Bernstein Trio Live at Smoke. Recent projects include the albumMonk, recorded with bassist Doug Weiss and drummer Bill Stewart; the unac­companied CD Solo Guitar – Live At Smalls; and his relentlessly swinging organ trio with Stewart and organist Larry Goldings. “I don’t like to hear someone play and feel like it’s too easy for them,” says Peter Bernstein. “I like to hear them thinking. Jazz is about solving problems on some level, working it out, expressing yourself.”
