The Trio: Larry Goldings/Peter Bernstein/Bill Stewart Monday, September 3, 2012 | 7:00pm Larry Goldings, organ Peter Bernstein, guitar Bill Stewart, drums In the mid 1990s, The New York Times described Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein, and Bill Stewart as “the best organ trio of the last decade.” The trio, which has now been together for over 20 years, has been recognized for charting new ground, with its synergistic playing, yet thoughtful music. They have recorded eight albums and one DVD together, all of which display their distinctive sound, whether exploring the depths of jazz standards, or playing their own original compositions. Their newest offering, Live at Smalls, is their first live record and captures the group’s energy and creativity from the New York City jazz club that helped garner their reputation as one of the greatest organ trios playing today.

BIOGR APHIES Larry Goldings, organ With his signature Hammond organ style and versatility on many keyboards, Boston native Larry Goldings (b. 1968) has traversed not only the wide spectrum of jazz where he is perhaps best known, but also the worlds of funk, pop, and electronic music. High in demand as a sideman, Goldings’ sound can be heard on scores of albums by artists in virtually every musical genre. As a leader, he has released 13 albums, many of which feature his long time organ trio with Peter Bernstein and Bill Stewart. Over the years, Goldings has been closely associated with Maceo Parker, Jim Hall, John Scofield, Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny, Madeleine Peyroux, and since 2002, with folk/pop icon, James Taylor. In 2007, Goldings, Jack DeJohnette and John Scofield, received a Grammy nomination in the category of Best Jazz Instrumental Album Individual or Group for their album, Trio Beyond - Saudades (ECM). Goldings also is active as a composer, arranger, and producer. His compositions reflect a wide listening palette—from Duke Ellington to Gabriel Fauré—in addition to more contemporary artists like Randy Newman, Björk, and Chico Buarque. Goldings’ songs have been recorded by Michael Brecker, Till Brönner, Jack DeJohnette, Bob Dorough, Jim Hall, Jane Monheit, Gaby Moreno, John Scofield, Mark Sholtez, Sia, Curis Stigers, and Toots Thielemans. Goldings’ music also has been featured in television shows and motion pictures, including, “The Office,”“Proof,” and “Funny People.” Peter Bernstein, guitar New York guitarist Peter Bernstein (b. 1967) has been an integral part of the world jazz scene since 1989. He has been sought out by musicians from all generations—touring with legendary players such as Jimmy Cobb, Lou Donaldson, Bobby Hutcherson, Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins, and Dr. Lonnie Smith and jazz stars of today such as Eric Alexander, Brad Mehldau, Diana Krall, Nicholas Payton, and

Joshua Redman. His recognizable guitar voice graces over a hundred recordings. As a leader, Bernstein has recorded six highly regarded albums, displaying not only his masterful interpretations of standards, but also his inventive and lyrical compositions. His latest project, Monk (Criss Cross), shows Bernstein’s deep understanding of the complexities of Thelonious Monk’s music, while never becoming overshadowed by Monk’s powerful personality. Bernstein also has taught at the Julliard School, Berklee College of Music, North Texas State University, the New School Jazz Program, and the Jazz Conservatory in Amsterdam. Guitar legend Jim Hall has said that Bernstein “is the most impressive young guitarist I’ve heard... He plays the best of them all for swing, logic, feel and taste, and has paid attention to the past as well as the future.” Bill Stewart, drums Originally from Des Moines, Iowa, drummer Bill Stewart (b. 1967) made his name as the rhythmic force behind guitarist John Scofield’s band, collaborating with him for five years between 1990 and 1995. ­He is now one of the most sought after jazz drummers in the world. Stewart’s playing is distinguished by its melodic focus, and its polyrhythmic, or layered, character. Although his drumming bears the influence of various melodic and hard swinging drummers who preceded him, including Max Roach, Roy Haynes, and Jack DeJohnette, Stewart’s voice is clearly his own, and already is influencing a younger generation of drummers. Stewart has toured extensively with Michael Brecker, Kevin Hays, Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, and Maceo Parker. His longstanding association with John Scofield has led to some of the highest quality records and live concerts in modern jazz. An excellent composer in his own right, Stewart has made several records as a leader that predominantly feature his own music, bearing the same thoughtfulness, humor, and impeccable taste that one hears in his playing.

Jimi Hendrix, who remains a profound influence to this day. After studying jazz guitar for four years at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Koch won 1st Prize in the 1989 Bluesbreaker Guitar Showdown judged by legendary bluesman Buddy Guy. Shortly after, he formed Greg Koch and the Tone Controls, which became one of the more popular acts of the region. The band went on to win five Wisconsin Area Music Awards for Blues Artist of the Year, and Koch personally took in seven WAMA awards as Guitarist of the Year. Koch soon found himself as a clinician for Fender, the world’s largest and most prestigious guitar and amplifier manufacturer. Bringing together worldclass chops and a humorous ability to articulate sounds and techniques with a genuine devotion to all things guitar, Koch

has developed an exceptionally effective approach to conducting guitar clinics. Greg’s relationship with music publishing giant, the Hal Leonard Corporation, has also resulted in a string of top-selling guitar method books, including Guitar Clues: Operation Pentatonic, Lead Licks and Rhythm Riffs, as well as Koch’s popular Hal Leonard instructional DVDs, two on the style of Stevie Ray Vaughan (approved by Jimmie Vaughan), one on Lynyrd Skynyrd, another celebrating revered blues stylists like Albert King, Albert Collins, Elmore James and Guitar Slim and one on his own twisted take on guitar called Guitar Gristle have revolutionized video guitar instruction with a combination of humor, effective instruction and inspiring musical performances into a package that can only be described as “edu-tainment.”
