From the Vault: My Interview With The Great Peter Bernstein

Welcome to episode 298 where we go back in the vault to 2016 with an interview by the renowned jazz guitarist Peter Bernstein. This was one of the first shows of the LJS Podcast, and a tremendously amazing opportunity to sit down with one of the jazz guitar greats. Peter shares his musical knowledge and insights about being a jazz musician.

Listen to episode 298

Back in 2016, the podcast was fairly new. I didn’t know much about how to be a good podcaster, do a great interview, and put on a good production.

But I was lucky to get to sit down with one of my musical heroes, Peter Bernstein, at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary music in New York City one afternoon.

It’s not often one gets these kinds of opportunities, and so looking back 5 years ago, I get sentimental thinking about this episode.

Enjoy this one from the vault!

In this episode:

  1. His time at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music
  2. Jazz is social music.
  3. Bus drivers and Jazz Musicians
  4. Pete’s advice for upcoming jazz musicians.
  5. Let Loose.
