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 jazz and Contemporary Improvisation groups coached by Tanya Kalmanovitch and Jerry Leake.

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