USA: Album Release from Will Bernard from Posi-Tone Records

Will Bernard "Out & About"

"Over the course of eleven originals, Bernard continually frames himself in different ways, constantly redefining his outlook and mining fresh musical veins with some help from four A-list musicians—organist Brian Charette, saxophonist John Ellis, bassist Ben Allison, and drummer Allison Miller.  It's a winning formula, making Out & About an out-and-out success." - Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

Tune in to the tasteful stylings of guitarist Will Bernard on his latest effort "Out & About."  Employing a wide palette of genres and sounds, this gifted instrumentalist makes a bold statement of purpose with both his stunning musicianship and his new program of original compositions.  Bernard's melodicism shines throughout the session with able assistance of some of the heaviest cats on the scene today, including the collective genius of bassist Ben Allison, organist Brian Charette, drummer Allison Miller, and tenor saxophone sensation John Ellis. While the session is definitely straight ahead and features some hard swinging highlights, the music is also elegantly lyrical and brilliantly evocative of a more modern jazz sensibility.
