How do you like your improvised music?

Hot? Contemporary? Crazy? Smooth?

It's all here in the mix, with dozens of club-style sets in March and April, usually three different acts each night. Tonight the mix includes Contemporary Improvisation groups coached by Anthony Coleman, Joe Morris, and Tal Zilber.

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