While attending the New School, Bernstein met Jim Hall, who recruited him for a concert at the 1990 JVC Jazz Festival, performing alongside such luminaries as John Scofield and Pat Metheny. He recorded his first album in 1992 as part of a quartet. Albums since then, often as lead of a trio, have included “Signs of Life,” “Heart’s Content” and “Monk.”

Rick Balestra, a Syracuse-based jazz guitarist and adjunct instructor of music at SUNY Oswego, will play host to Bernstein.

Tickets for Bernstein’s performance are $15 ($5 for SUNY Oswego students), available at all college box offices, online at tickets.oswego.edu or by calling 315-312-2141.

A preconcert talk will take place at 7 p.m.
