Peter Bernstein 
New York guitarist Peter Bernstein has been an integral part of the world jazz scene since 1989. He has been sought out by musicians from all generations -- touring with legendary players such as Jimmy Cobb, Lou Donaldson, Bobby Hutcherson, Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins, and Dr. Lonnie Smith and jazz stars of today such as Eric Alexander, Brad Mehldau, Diana Krall, Nicholas Payton, and Joshua Redman. His recognizable guitar voice graces over a hundred recordings.
Guitar legend Jim Hall has said that Bernstein “is the most impressive young guitarist I’ve heard... He plays the best of them all for swing, logic, feel and taste, and has paid attention to the past as well as the future."
