Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Steven Bernstein - A Trumpet's Life pt.1



Steven Bernstein A Trumpet Life
Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Steven Bernstein - A Trumpet's Life pt.1
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2011-08-31

I distinctly remember discovering Steven Bernstein's incredible trumpet playing and arranging through one of his bands, Sex Mob and their album Din of Inequity, which included some John Medeski featurings and hard-to-believe covers of Prince, John Barry, Paul McCartney and a few others. It was the end of the 90s and France was as lost musically as it is today, with musical ignorance reigning supreme. Things have been slowly evolving thanks to independent medias such as Paris DJs (and djouls.com before) who always had the will to defend incredible artists you've quite never heard of. So here's the first part of our introduction to this amazing musican and arranger, a 40mn eclectic jazz mix, out there and for everyone at the same time... We've also published an interview (in english or french); we can't urge you enough not to miss the Sly Stone tribute show in Paris on sept 11, opening for Medeski, Martin & Wood; we'll publish the second part of this mix in a month, right on spot for the release of the new album MTO plays Sly; and Steven Bernstein should back later this year for a third mix cooked by the man himself - how's that for an introduction?
