Festival International de Jazz de Montréal:

Peter Bernstein / Larry Goldings / Bill Stewart trio

The trio of guitarist Peter Bernstein, organist Larry Goldings and drummer Bill Stewart is the longest-lived and most virtuosic organ trio in existence.

Celebrating three decades as a band, they have taken the organ trio tradition popularized by Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff and Larry Young in the 1960s into fresh territory, recording a dozen masterly albums under various members’ names or as a collective unit – rotating IDs that clearly show the equality of each member’s contribution to the whole and their individual stature as world-class bandleaders.
