**Peter Bernstein**

Peter Bernstein has been a prominent figure in the jazz scene since 1989. With over 200 recordings and extensive performances worldwide, he’s released 12 albums as a leader and participated in notable collaborations. His breakthrough came when Jim Hall invited him to a concert during the 1990 JVC Jazz Festival, alongside John Scofield and Pat Metheny. His diverse career includes stints with Joshua Redman, Diana Krall, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Melvin Rhyne, showcasing his versatility.

**Bill Stewart**

Originally from Bill Stewart (b. 1966) made his name as the rhythmic force behind guitarist John Scofield since 1990 and still collaborating with him regularly since 1990. He is now one of the most sought after jazz drummers in the world.

Stewart’s playing is distinguished by its melodic focus, and its polyrhythmic, or layered, character. Although his drumming bears the influence of various melodic and swinging drummers who preceded him, Stewart’s voice is clearly his own, and has influenced a younger generation of drummers.
