Peter Bernstein: Live at Smalls
A live recording from an intimate venue—in this case, the well-respected Greenwich Village club, Smalls—is like comfort food.. Live at Smalls, from guitarist Peter Bernstein, doesn't disappoint, starting off with a blues to welcome everyone in, with solid solo turns from all members of the quartet, also including pianist Richard Wyands, bassist John Webber and drummer Jimmy Cobb.

Yes, Jimmy Cobb on drums. Not your average, everyday sideman. These performances come from two nights in 2008 (December 17 and 18), but weren't released until 2010 on the Live at Smalls imprint; a fairly new record label with nearly a dozen releases to date.

The recording quality is good, and does a fine job of capturing this very talented quartet in fine form. Bernstein is, as always, exemplary; he is simply one of the finer players around, and this recording serves as a good showcase for his playing, especially considering the very high quality sideman on the gig.

Highly recommend this recording for fans of Bernstein, of Smalls, and for that matter, of live recordings, this one satisfies.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
