Steven Bernstein: Sex Mob Plays Fellini: The Music of Nino Rota at Portland PDX Jazz Festival at Winningstad Theatre
The legendary downtown band Sex Mob takes on the music of the great Italian film composer Nino Rota, frequent collaborator of director Federico Fellini. Led by trumpeter and bandleader Steven Bernstein since 1995, Sex Mob is a rare group that has created its own sound, a completely unique language combined with the telepathy that musicians cultivate over years of playing together. Grounded in jazz but marked by a dazzling versatility, their repertoire can range from Nirvana to Prince, Bond to Basie, and everything in between.
“Steven Bernstein is a rogue historian of jazz. If his band Sexmob can’t provoke fun and shock through the music itself, they will do it through choice of material." - The New York Times
Winningstad Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway
