Talking about jazz at Berklee

Jazz is surely a music of improvisation. But its history of in-the-moment inspiration runs parallel with that of the songs that (usually) provide a runway for those flights of improvisation.

An ambitious event at Berklee College of Music, billed as a symposium and concert series, will take a look at the current state of jazz composition. A long list of guest artists will be on hand to explore the topic from all angles. Beginning on Tuesday and running for six days, it offers a generous series of panel discussions, musical demonstrations, lectures, and full-on concerts. Most events are free, though attendees are asked to register in advance on Berklee’s website.
