When it comes to guitarists of his generation, Peter Bernstein stands head and shoulders above the crowd. His tone and melodic approach are so recognizable as to be detected in a just a few bars. Since 1989, he has been the go-to guitarist in New York City and has literally graced hundreds of recordings.

The album features a quartet of artists who are equally well versed in tradition and innovation. Bassist Doug Weiss and drummer Bill Stewart are longtime collaborators stretching back nearly three decades. Let Loose is fluid and smooth but not overtly so, just great mainstream jazz guitar with nice playing from Gerald Clayton on the piano too.

This CD, along with George Coleman’s A Master Speaks and Kenny Barron’s new one , Book of Intuition, are all unavoidable records, ‘must have’ jazz releases. This album, his debut for Smoke Sessions, seems to distill all his experiences and expertise into a package as fine as a well-aged Bordeaux. Treat yourself, you won’t be sorry!
