    Jazz guitarist and New York City native Peter Bernstein has been a part of the jazz scene in New York and abroad since 1989. He has released nine albums and has performed with musicians from all generations, including Joshua Redman and Diana Krall. Bernstein is described as “an extremely elegant musician with a gorgeous tone” and legendary guitarist Jim Hall says “he is the most impressive guitarist I’ve heard”. The Peter Bernstein Trio includes Mike LeDonne (organ) and Joe Farnsworth (drums).

    They join us in honor of April as Jazz Appreciation Month (an annual celebration of jazz as an original American art form) and to celebrate WBGO’s 35th anniversary as a publicly-supported, cultural institution that champions jazz to a worldwide audience through radio, online, travel, community events and more.

    So bring your friends, your family, your lunch and enjoy a wonderful performance.
