About this Event

Doors at 7pm | Performance 7:30pm

Crosstown Arts presents the Modern Masters Jazz Series, a monthly series featuring jazz soloists from around the country performing with the series house band, The Ted Ludwig Trio. May's featured musician will be award-winning guitarist Peter Bernstein.

The jazz guitarist, among the most sought after in the New York area, has a feather-light touch, an encyclopedic knowledge of chords and the ability to play standards like he’s inventing them on the spot.

- The Los Angeles Daily News

Mr. Bernstein is a fluidly improvising guitarist in the post-bop tradition, with control over harmony and a beautiful sound.

- The New York Times

Peter Bernstein produces a warm, ringing, muscular tone which echoes that of such giants as Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, and Kenny Burrell.

- Jazziz
