What Comes Next

Peter Bernstein

Smoke Sessions

What Comes Next, the new album by guitarist Peter Bernstein, delivers a musical vision found only in the most incisive jazz. Joined by pianist Sullivan Fortner (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Roy Hargrove), bassist Peter Washington (Bill Charlap, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers) and drummer Joe Farnsworth (McCoy Tyner, Pharoah Sanders), Bernstein and company answer the implied question of the title with a timeless classic.

“Throughout this recording, Bernstein stays mostly in the forefront so it’s easy to focus on his fluid lines but the album becomes even more enjoyable when listening closely to the rhythm section, which as stated, is as good as it gets for straight-ahead jazz.” – Glide Magazine

“So what does jazz in the time of coronavirus sound like? Much as it did previously, if this beauty is anything to go by.” – The Times (UK)

“Bernstein is forging ahead like he always has: Leaning into what once was—and still is—worthy, establishing a foundation to spring into parts unkown.” – DownBeat
