Peter Bernstein, Larry Goldings, Bill Stewart: Live At The Village Vanguard

When their busy schedules align, guitarist Peter Bernstein, keyboard player Larry Goldings and drummer Bill Stewart play together as a trio. Their format isn't earth-shatteringly new — largely standards, a few original pieces, classic sonorities in which Hammond B3 organ meets electric guitar — but after nearly 25 years as a band, their rapport is. Theirs isn't an organ trio of greasy funk, but their cleaner language is plenty tasteful, overlaying smart choices atop plenty of swing.

They convene again for a week at New York's Village Vanguard. WBGO and NPR Music present a live video webcast and radio broadcast of the Goldings, Bernstein and Stewart band in concert.
