How do you like your jazz?

Hot? Contemporary? Crazy? Smooth?

It's all here in the mix, with dozens of club-style sets in November and December, usually three different acts each night. Tonight the mix includes Nedelka Prescod's Gospel Ensemble, Non-Majors Contemporary Improvisation Ensemble coached by Eden MacAdam-Somer, Non-Majors Jazz Ensemble coached by Tanya Kalmanovitch.

These student ensembles are the club headliners of tomorrow—coached by leading jazz and improvising artists from the New England Conservatory faculty.
