Steven Bernstein is one of the hardest working men in show business. He composes, arranges, leads bands of feverish and crackling intent, and plays a heckuva lot of trumpet and the instrument's obscure cousin, the slide trumpet. Here is a survey of some of his career highlights.
Steven Bernstein is a trumpeter/slide trumpeter, bandleader, arranger, and composer who lives outside of musical convention. He has recently released three critically acclaimed CDs Diaspora Soul, Diaspora Blues (featuring the SamRivers trio), and his most recent, Diaspora Hollywood.
