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