Walking on the sunny slide of the jazz street

As the gent in question is a jazz trumpeter, arranger, bandleader and composer, that’s not a bad epithet to attract.

Steven Bernstein has been described as an artist “who lives outside musical convention.” As the gent in question is a jazz trumpeter, arranger, bandleader and composer, that’s not a bad epithet to attract.

The 56-year-old Jewish American musician will be in town next week, when he flies over with the rest of the Sex Mob quartet, to take part in this year’s Jerusalem Jazz Festival. Over the last three-plus decades, Bernstein, who predominantly plays the rarely used slide trumpet, has not only made creative strides, he has also garnered critical acclaim and even some pretty impressive awards and nominations. Sex Mob’s Sexotica release, which came out last year, was a candidate for a Grammy and his many and diverse projects have found him working alongside the likes of jazz titans Roswell Rudd, Sam Rivers and Don Byron, as well as stellar acts from more commercial fields, such as Aretha Franklin, Lou Reed, Digable Planets, Sting and Courtney Love.
