Steven Bernstein is a trumpeter/slide trumpeter, bandleader, arranger, and composer who lives outside of musical convention. He has released four critically acclaimed CDs;Diaspora Soul, Diaspora Blues (featuring the Sam Rivers trio), Diaspora Hollywood, andDiaspora Suite. All four are on John Zorn’s Tzadik label. His band Sexmob has been together since 1995 touring the world, winning numerous awards, and has had their music featured on MTV, Saturday Night Live and NPR. Sexotica, recorded for Thirsty Ear’s Blue series, was nominated for a Grammy in 2006. Their most recent CD, Sex Mob Plays Felliniwas released in 2013. His nine-piece ensemble, the Millennial Territory Orchestra, has released two CDs, MTO Vol 1 and We Are MTO. Their latest CD, MTO Plays Sly, features Bernie Worrell, Vernon Reid, Antony, Martha Wainwright, Dean Bowman, Sandra St. Victor and Shilpa Ray. MTO was formed in 1999 for a series of Midnight shows at Tonic, and spent a year and a half long residency at the Jazz Standard. Bernstein also arranged and co-produced Baby Loves Jazz for Verve Records, featuring vocalists Sharon Jones and Babi Floyd, along with keyboard master John Medeski. Bernstein’s most recent project is Butler/Bernstein & the Hot 9, a collaboration with the brilliant New Orleans pianist Henry Butler. Their debut recording, Viper Drag, was released in May 2014 on the new Impulse! record label. After having songs in many movies, and writing songs for movies, the natural progression was for Peter to start scoring films as well – his first notable score was the David Jacobson film Down in the Valley, starring Edward Norton and Evan Rachel Wood. Other soundtracks of note include Role Models, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Tomorrow You’re Gone and a score for the Ron Howard produced television show Breakthrough airing this November.

Following a triumphant 2015 concert series, Greenwich House Music School is proud to present Uncharted 2016, a concert series featuring high-profile local artists debuting first-time performances of new work or new collaborations. The Uncharted concert season covers a broad selection of performative genres, from jazz to traditional folk, electronic to classical, cabaret to tap dance. Performances for Uncharted will take place every Thursday from March 24 to May 12. 

“The Uncharted series was founded as a safe space for artists to take risks,” says series curator Jennie Wasserman, formerly of SFJAZZ, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub and Carnegie Hall. “Last season’s collection of sold-out concerts proved that audiences are always excited to hear something new from their favorite performers. That success has emboldened us to vary our lineup even further. Greenwich Village is one of America’s oldest and most successful social melting pots; reflecting the neighborhood’s artistic excellence and diversity is one of the goals of our programming.”

Performances start at 8:00 p.m. Concerts are staged at Greenwich House Music School under the chandeliers of its Renee Weiler Concert Hall, an intimate 100-capacity room featuring excellent acoustics, a welcoming neighborhood vibe and a pair of Steinway grand pianos. All shows are general admission and open to all ages. Complimentary beer and wine is served prior to and during all concerts.
