Blue Campfire: an intimate conversation between trumpeter Steven Bernstein and three iconic and legendary guitarists, this unique ensemble will visit original compositions, as well as pieces by Ellington, Monk, the Band, the Grateful Dead and Allen Toussaint.

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, and Diaspora 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 Fellini was 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. 

Guitarist Steve Cardenas began his musical career in Kansas City and has been an integral part of the New York City jazz community since 1995. Steve has performed and recorded with many well-known and highly esteemed musicians. Notably, he was a longstanding member of the Paul Motian Electric Bebop Band (which later became the Paul Motian Octet), the Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra, as well as Joey Baron's band, Killer Joey. Steve is currently a member of the Steve Swallow Quintet, Ben Allison Band, Jon Cowherd's Mercy Project and John Patitucci's Electric Guitar Quartet. He has toured extensively throughout Europe, North and South America and Asia, performing at countless international music festivals, theaters, opera houses and clubs. Steve also leads his own trio and has released four recordings as a leader. His most recent album, Melody in a Dream, was released on Sunnyside Records last year.

David Tronzo has devoted most of his life to music, steadily honing his skills as a self-taught student to his modern-day evolution to becoming a world-renowned slide guitar musician and teacher. Tronzo has received the distinction of being voted one of the "Top 100 Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician Magazine. In addition, the pundits in New York City bestowed their long-time resident (1979-2002) with more accolades ("Best Guitarist in N.Y.C.-1993" by the New York Press). Musician Magazine honored him with the distinction of being one of the "Top Ten Jazz Guitarists". Tronzo's unquenchable thirst for mastering his craft has provided him with a diversified taste in music, which can be seen in his unique playing style. The result is a startlingly innovative body of extended techniques for the slide guitar for which he is credited with creating: fluid single lines, finger-behind-the-slide chords, harmonic slaps and unconventional slide accouterments such as plastic cups, rags, pencils and wires. His "inventiveness" as a slide guitarist has been the subject of two doctoral candidates' ethnomusicology theses in Germany (1995 and 2001). 



Uncharted is 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 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."
