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 Mal Barsamian, Eden MacAdam-Somer, and Hankus Netsky.

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