He learned the guitar as a child and has released two guitar centric jazz albums, one in 2003 and the latest in 2009. His first release was "The Journey Within" and Bernie wrote seven songs on the album. It went all the way up to #3 on the U.S. jazz charts.

"The Journey Within" was followed by "Moving Forward" in 2009 and had a guest appearance by Bruce Springsteen on the album. Like "The Journey Within," "Moving Forward" was a great success peaking at #2 in the U.S. Jazz charts.
