“When the time comes, Bernstein clicks an invisible switch and the band pops into semi-flawless unison. At that point, you might imagine yourself in Harlem in 1929…” —Village Voice
Tearing into witty and funky new arrangements of little-known jazz nuggets from the 1920s and ‘30s, as well as radically transforming songs by artists such as Prince and the Beatles, Steven Bernstein (Grammy-nominated composer/Sex Mob trumpeter) leads an improvisational nine-piece outfit playing irreverent 21st-century jazz. On this evening audiences can expect an ambitious, yet reverent take on Sly & the Family Stone’s music, spirit, and legacy.
The evenings STELLAR line-up:
Steven Bernstein-trumpet, slide trumpet
Curtis Fowlkes- trombone
