Harvard, Jazz, and graduate students, too!
This week-end, Harvard is celebrating 40 years of jazz, and the Boston Herald finds this is cool. The jazz program at the college has been lead by trombonist Tom Everett since 1971! If you're in the area, don't miss the concert on Saturday in Sanders Theater.
But remember that Dudley House, the graduate students center at Harvard, hosts a dynamic jazz program as well! One of the great recent events was the performance of Mary Lou Williams' Zodiac Suite, a project led by my friend Michael Heller.
Make sure you read the fascinating article written by scholar Ryan Banagale: a comparison of the Dudley House performance with historical recordings.
