Peter Bernstein/Larry Goldings/Bill Stewart
A respected and hard-swinging trio
Guitarist Peter Bernstein, organist Larry Goldings, and drummer Bill Stewart make up one of the best organ jazz trios of the past two decades. The respect the musicians have for one another comes through in the subtle and intricate manner of their musical conversation on stage. Drawing mainly on jazz standards, and a few original pieces, they re-imagine the organ jazz trio in a quiet, sensual, and grooving presentation. All members of the Young Lion jazz movement, and now all firmly established jazz stars, this group has been together for 25 years with multiple recordings under their belt that display their distinctive sound. Whether exploring the depths of jazz standards, or playing their original compositions, jazz enthusiasts recognize the trio for charting new ground with hard-swinging, yet thoughtful music. Peter’s warm, feather-light touch and fluid improvisation with Larry Goldings’ warm hum, and Bill Stewart’s polyrhythmic and melodic focus, create a vivid combination of synergistic playing. The joy of this amazingly versatile instrumental lineup is a treat for all to hear.
