“On trumpet, and as a composer and leader, Steven Bernstein is uncategorizable.”
—Nat Hentoff, JazzTimes

Steven Bernstein with Peter Apfelbaum and Friends, presents Diaspora Blues. Originally from Berkeley, these now New York-based cutting edge composer/ performers are stretching the definition of Jewish music. Diaspora Blues is based on the work of legendary cantor Moshe Koussevitsky, and was originally recorded in 2002 with the Sam Rivers Trio. This West Coast premiere includes Grammy-nominee, Steven Bernstein-trumpet, slide trumpet; Peter Apfelbaum-tenor saxophone, flute; Devin Hoff-bass; Scott Amendola-drums.
