“Sometimes a great idea on paper—four virtuoso guitarists, representing several generations, play standards honoring the late jazz master Jim Hall—thrives in the real world too. That’s the case with Inspired” —JAZZIZ
Peter Bernstein, Mike Moreno, and Rale Micic celebrate the legacy of Jazz legend/guitarist John Abercrombie in a project called Inspired, creating an evening of exciting duets and solo guitar music. Three guitarists — different styles, different generations, different backgrounds, but all with one thing in common, respecting and continuing John Abercrombie’s vision.
Peter Bernstein has been a part of the jazz scene in New York and abroad since 1989, participated in over 80 recordings and numerous festivals, concert and club performances with musicians from all generations including Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz, Nicholas Payton, and Joshua Redman.
After graduating High School, Mike quickly moved to New York City to attend the New School University with the highest scholarship the school had ever given to a guitar player. He soon began playing gigs, working his way into the New York Jazz scene. After several years of paying dues with many bands around town, Mike gained the recognition needed to be called to perform and tour with some of the biggest names in the jazz world. Mike Moreno is becoming a hot item on the New York jazz scene. His agile guitar playing has attracted the attention of major artists such as Jeff Tain Watts, Greg Osby, and Kenny Garrett.
