Recorded during Lockdown at New York’s Sear Sound, the guitar star is with Sullivan Fortner on piano, Peter Washington, on double bass, who on this particular track steers the big beat like the captain of a supertanker taking the magnificent ship into a welcoming harbour. Joe Farnsworth on drums shows his class throughout.

Bernstein is an influence on young players out there such as the Irish talent Joseph Leighton and it's no wonder that his approach has broad appeal given the sheer fluency and flowing skill in his method. What Comes Next also features a previously unrecorded Sonny Rollins composition, the calypso 'Newark News' so press the Newklear option, too. Feeling good.
