Part of a week long celebration of Jazz. A New York native, guitarist Peter Bernstein has become a jazz fixture. He cut his teeth as a sideman for saxophonist Lou Donaldson, singer Diana Krall, and legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb. Bernstein has an acclaimed longtime trio with organist Larry Goldings and drummer Bill Stewart. He has appeared with numerous artists, including Joshua Redman, Nicholas Payton, Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz, Tom Harrell, and Eric Alexander. Current recordings include Monk, and Solo Guitar: Live at Smalls. For this concert, Bernstein will be backed by Big Beat, a swinging and dynamic big band formed in 2014 by alumni of WP’s Jazz Studies program, lead by WP faculty member Stephen Marcone. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear this world-class jazz guitarist featured with a grooving big band!
