Saxophonist, composer, producer and educator Marc Kibrick Bernstein was born in Brooklyn, NY on January 19, 1961.
After hearing a recording of Benny Goodman's small group at a clarinet lesson as a youngster, Marc started going to the Village Vanguard, Sweet Basil and 7th Ave South to regularly hear, amongst others: Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, James Moody, Gil Evans Big Band, George Coleman, The Brecker Brothers, Harold Mabern, Jaco Pastorius ...
Upon graduation from Berklee College of Music in 1984, Marc had been inspired further by hearing great Bostonians like Roy Haynes, Jerry Bergonzi, Allan Dawson, and his sax mentors Jimmy Mosher and George Garzone.
Bernstein returned to New York in 1985 and recorded with Hal Galper and Billy Hart. He formed a quartet and duo featuring Hal which performed occasionally until the early 90’s. In addition, Marc played quite regularly with his group featuring Billy during that same period. ....... more
