Robert Walter (Greyboy Allstars) and Will Bernard are known to the world from Robert Walter’s 20th Congress and the Stanton Moore Trio, Simon Lott from Charlie Hunter Trio and Skerik’s Maelstrom Trio.

Will and Simon have been touring the US, Europe and the Caribbean with Will’s various projects.

More About Blue Plate Special (except from Troy Collins review on

“Accompanied by a stellar band, Bernard’s quartet features three of today’s most impressive jazz-funk virtuosos. Gov’t Mule bassist Andy Hess and renowned Galactic drummer Stanton Moore are a tight and formidable rhythm section, able to navigate an endless variety of pneumatic beats and quick turnarounds with ease. A perfect foil for the leader, Medeski extracts a pungent vein of textures from his usual assortment of analog keyboards, conjuring distorted sheets of sound on the menacing ‘571’ and scintillating tones on the surf-influenced ‘Gen Pop.’ …

…A refreshing example of intelligent party music, Blue Plate Special is another document that reinforces Bernard’s reputation as a talent deserving wider recognition. Fans of old school funksters like Medeski, Martin & Wood, Galactic and Zony Mash would be well advised to check this out.”
