Trumpeter Steven Bernstein’s week begins with his long-running band Sexmob, playing a cross-section of material from their albums devoted to classic soundtrack music, including their 2013 album focused on the work of Federico Fellini collaborator Nino Rota, Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti: Sexmob Play Fellini, and their 2001 session consisting of John Barry’s immortal music for the 007 franchise, Sexmob Does Bond.

ABOUT STEVEN BERNSTEIN
A master of the previously obscure slide trumpet, Berkeley-born Steven Bernstein is a fearless improviser, composer and arranger whose résumé includes collaboration with Bill Frisell, Levon Helm, Lou Reed, Linda Ronstadt, Henry Butler, and Allen Toussaint. He leads the cinematically inspired band Sex Mob, the Millennial Territory Orchestra – an ensemble rooted in the territory bands of the 1920s and 30s, and the Butler-Bernstein Hot 9 devoted to the early jazz of Fats Waller and Jelly Roll Morton.

ABOUT STEVEN BERNSTEIN

Recently celebrating its twentieth year, the quartet has honed a singular sound marked by high-energy, protean group improvisation and rollicking grooves unlike any other band on the planet. Originally formed for a weekly residency at New York’s Knitting Factory, they’ve earned a devoted fan base with boisterous deconstructions of tunes by a shaggy menagerie of pop acts, from Abba and James Brown to Prince and Elvis Presley, and released nine superlative albums for the Ropeadope, Columbia, Rex, Thirsty Ear, and Royal Potato labels.

Steven Bernstein's Sexmob have given themselves one task: to make modern jazz fun.

It doesn't get earthier than Sexmob...What matters is the fact that it catches the spirit, that infectious yet elusive Sexmob vibe.
