Berstein created his latest album, What comes next, during the pandemic restrictions, with a question we've all been asking ourselves in recent years. About what it's like to live in a locked-down world, interspersed with political issues and protests in a crucial US presidential election year. About what's next. This album indicates a musical forward movement in a way that only the finest jazz can.
Peter Bernstein has been recognized several times in America's most influential newspapers.
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.
