Peter Bernstein is known for his clean, warm guitar tone and his lyrical melodic lines. He first studied jazz at Rutgers University where his teachers included Ted Dunbar and Kenny Barron, then completed his degree at The New School University, where he met and studied with his primary mentor, the legendary guitarist Jim Hall. Starting in 1990, Hall and Bernstein began performing as a duo to great acclaim. Since then, Bernstein has played with numerous jazz artists including Joshua Redman, Melvin Rhyne, Diana Krall, Larry Goldings, Bill Stewart, Jimmy Cobb, Lee Konitz, Roy Hargrove, Tom Harrell, Joe Lovano, Jack McDuff, Lonnie Smith, Eric Alexander, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride, and Mike LeDonne. In 2008, Bernstein joined The Blue Note 7, a septet formed in honor of the 70th anniversary of Blue Note Records. With that group he has recorded one album, Mosaic, and toured the U.S. and Europe. Bernstein can currently be heard as a member of the Sonny Rollins Quintet.
