Artie Bernstein!

2 posts in this topic

Anyone heard this talented bassist?

He played with lot of mid 1930's band, and finally he was hired by Benny Goodman (you can hear him with Goodman's combo with Christian, I am in hope these tracks are in much better sound today on new Columbia's release).

He had big, full sounded tone, but flexible enough. Despite poor record equipment of the past Artie's clear tone and secure playing can be recognized instantly!

He certainly was close to line that drew great Walter Page, probably similar to John Kirby, judging to sonority of his bass lines.
